Ishim is the administrative centre of the Ishim district of the Tyumen Oblast.
The history of the town goes back to the XVII century. The first settlement in the territory was the Korkina Sloboda (burg) - a fortress on the then border between the Russian Empire and the Siberian Khanate. After the mass migration of farmers from the European part of the country to the region, in 1782 Catherine the Great of Russia granted Korkina Sloboda the town status and ordered that it be renamed Ishim. The town owes its name to the river Ishim it stands on.
The city's industrial potential of today is defined by companies of the engineering, the construction, and the light and food industry sectors. The most significant share of the total production output (up to 70%) falls to the food industry which includes the industry of flour and cereals.
The food and food processing companies produce a vast range of dairy and confectionery products, spirits and beverages, meat products and sausages. High quality food products meet both the local demand of the district and the demand of other regions of Russia.
The 2008 retail turnover was 4.5 billion roubles. Compared to 2007, the growth rate was 14.6%.
