Russia to export beef, poultry to Japan


In a landmark agreement reached between Moscow and Tokyo, Russia will begin exporting beef and poultry to Japan in the second half of 2017. According to Evgeny Gromyko, Russia Deputy Agriculture Minister, Japanese officials visited Russian farms in March and gave the final approval to two local beef producers, Ratimir and Miratorg West.

Japan will export beef jerky to Russia, he added. Russia also wants to sell pork to Japan in the future, but it is currently not possible due to an African swine fever outbreak in Russia, said the official, reported RT.
