Roshen not officially notified of ban on confectionary exports to Russia


Roshen Corporation, one of the largest confectionery manufacturers in Ukraine, has not yet received an official notification from the Russian Federal Consumer Rights Service (Rospotrebnadzor) about a ban on the supply of its products to Russia, the company said in a statement Monday, according to Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe.

As Ukrinform reported, the Russian sanitary service has introduced a ban on the supply to Russia of the products of Roshen.

According to Head of the Russian Federal Consumer Rights Service (Rospotrebnadzor) Gennady Onishchenko, Rospotrebnadzor picked confectionaries produced at four of the company's facilities - in Kyiv, Vinnytsia, Mariupol and Kremenchuk and concluded that they "did not comply with declared parameters."

A reminder that this is not the first claim of Rospotrebnadzor to the products, which come from Ukraine. In particular, Rospotrebnadzor earlier imposed a ban on the supply of Ukrainian cheese. After a series of agreements, cheese supplies resumed.
