Swedish agri products re-allowed in Russia
Russia is expected to lift its three year ban on
imports of animal feed and poultry products from Sweden.
The move follows a meeting between the head of the Russia veterinary
authority Rosselkhoznador, Sergey Dankvert and the Swedish agriculture minister
Safety of animal feed
The discussion revolved around the safety of animal feed and poultry
products that have been banned since 2004 following an outbreak of Newcastle
disease in Sweden. The new agreement will also allow the export of poultry
breeding stock into Russia.
During the visit to Sweden Dankvert held talks with the 13 strong Russian
veterinary inspection team in the Swedish meat plants.
