Russia Adjusts List of Banned Agricultural, Fisheries Products

21 August 2014

RUSSIA - Russia has amended its list of fishery and agricultural products that have been banned for one year from the EU, US, Australia, Canada and Norway.

the new list will now allow the import of 

  • potatoes
  • peas
  • sweet corn hybrid
  • onion
  • dietary supplements (vitamins and minerals designed to compensate for the lack of vitamins and minerals in the human body)
  • flavourings
  • proteins and their mixtures
  • food fiber supplements
  • lactose-free dairy products

Atlantic salmon and trout smolts have also been excluded of the list as it will ensure that commercial fish farming in Russia can continue.
