Russia Set to Ban Norwegian Meat and Dairy15 January 2014
RUSSIA – The Russian food safety authority is tightening food safety standards on meat and dairy products imported from Norway.
Rosselkhoznadzor has announced that Norwegian guarantees, provided by Norwegian Food Safety Authority, Mattilsynet, are not satisfactory, reports Russia’s Dairy News.
Aleksey Alekseyenko, Rosselkhoznadzor representative, revealed the news, adding that Norwegian products could face embargoes.
Concerns arose when Mattilsynet did not bring joint electronic food certification and traceability systems into force following bi-lateral agreement.
