Russian watchdog may ban import of Belarus dairy companies — spokesperson


Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor is ready to ban import of products from a number of Belarus companies supplying poor quality products if Belarus authorities do not undertake required measures, official spokesperson of the regulator Yuliya Melano told TASS on Wednesday. These are largely dairy companies and fish producer Santa-Bremor.

"Violations of veterinary and sanitary requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union are still found when inspecting products of certain Belarus companies," Melano said. Prohibited and harmful substances were repeatedly found along with quality and microbiology nonconformities, she said.

"In case of repeated discovery of violated veterinary and sanitary requirements Rosselkhoznadzor will have to independently introduce temporary restrictions on supplies to Russia," Melano added.
