Russia to strengthen controls over fruit and vegetables imports from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus

Staff Writer | October 18, 2017
The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) reported that due to the increased attempts to supply banned products via Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus, the control over the import of fruits and vegetables from these countries will be strengthened.

According to the service, products from third countries are allegedly supplied to Belarus, Armenia and Azerbaijan and then attempts are made at re-exporting them under the guise of products produced in these countries.

The monitoring will be particularly strict in the case of tomato shipments, as each single lot will have to contain information about the producer.
