China allows 11 more Russian enterprises to deliver poultry products

MOSCOW. Jan 10 (Interfax) - China has permitted an additional 11 Russian enterprises to deliver poultry products to the Chinese market.

The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) reports that nine poultry processing plants and two poultry storage companies have been included in the list of Russian companies with the right to deliver poultry products to the Chinese market. Permission was granted because Rosselkhoznadzor had provided a guarantee that Russian poultry producers comply with the standards and requirements of China.

As a result, 40 Russian poultry processing plants and 15 poultry storage companies currently have the right to export poultry products to China.

Additionally, China's General Administration of Customs has permitted the delivery of turkey by-products from Russia, resulting from lengthy collaboration with China, Rosselkhoznadzor said. The delivery of by-products from Chinese-approved companies is permitted, the watchdog said.

Russia and China signed the protocols on the mutual delivery of poultry and other poultry products in November 2018, and exports to China started in March 2019, with Miratorg being the first company to do so.
