Russian food watchdog to scrutinize Hungarian meat processors
Russiaʼs plant and animal health authority, Rosselkhoznadzor, has agreed with its Hungarian counterpart on the details of reviews local meat companies must undergo to regain entry into the Russian market, news agency Tass said yesterday, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
Rosselkhoznadzor chief Sergey Dankvert spoke on the phone with his counterparts in Hungary and Greece on the reviews, which will begin in both countries on April 20, Tass added. A group of Russian experts will scrutinize approximately 20 Hungarian companies within a ten-day period. Russia introduced an embargo on food imports from Europe last August, as a counter-measure to sanctions imposed by the West due to the crisis in Ukraine.
