Insufficient legislation on state control of grain quality may undermine Russia’s grain exports, agriculture watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said prior to parliamentary hearings on the issue.
Russia   Non-fulfillment of guarantees
According to a report, prepared by the agricultural watchdog for the hearings, the legal gap may "entail non-fulfillment of guarantees of supplies of quality products to the international grain market and create serious risks for the development of the state agricultural complex and the country’s economy in general."

Besides, Russia may lose its status of one of the world’s biggest grain exporters due to lax quality control, the report reads.

The report also says that the unsolved issue also affects the quality of bread and flour for Russian consumers, TASS reported.
