From 17th August 2015, the Russian Agricultural Supervision Agency Rosselkhozdanzor lifts the temporary restrictions of food embargo. Milk product deliveries into the Russian Federation are permitted from a number of dairies of New Zealand. This decision was made after an analysis of materials provided by the country’s veterinary service.
The list of products permitted for importation includes, for example, dehydrated milk fat, whey protein concentrate, and milk protein concentrate. These products are highly demanded in the Russian Federation and are practically not manufactured in this country. It will be recalled that the restrictions on milk product importation from New Zealand were imposed back in 2013, after botulinum toxins had been discovered in the goods.
