Russian dairy industry threatens milk supply over new government order

Mar 10, 2016farminguk.com

Russian dairy companies have threatened to stop supplying milk to the nation's stores unless the government revokes an order requiring additional veterinary-safety documents to accompany each shipment, the Kommersant business daily reported Wednesday.

None of Russia's dairy suppliers would be able to meet the requirements set in the Agriculture Ministry order, said PepsiCo spokeswoman Marina Zibareva, Kommersant reported. PepsiCo sells various brands of milk in Russia.

“Essentially this means that starting this March, production may stop, and supplies of milk to retailers may end,” she was quoted as saying.
