The President of Nestle in Russia-Eurasia Marcial Rolland sent the Deputy head of the Ministry of economic development (MAYOR) of the Russian Federation Sawa Sipovo a letter in which he warned that Russian producers of dairy products will not make it in time to move to electronic veterinary certificates (EMU), threatening disruptions in the supply of dairy products.
From 1 July this year, the EVS must be made, in particular for cheese, butter, cottage cheese, and 1 November — on milk, dairy products and ice cream, reports the newspaper “Kommersant”, which was a letter to the top Manager.
Electronic veterinary certification is introduced for tracking animal products from production to sales, to avoid counterfeiting and tax evasion. In may, the Rosselkhoznadzor has advised that the forgeries were 21.6% of dairy products.
But the milkman, actively defended from the new requirements in 2018, saying that today is not ready for them. While the Advisory Council on foreign investments (FIAC) said that for the transition to electronic system for all products required at least a year.
FIAC is convinced that the Ministry of agriculture was to conduct a preliminary assessment of the readiness of participants of the dairy market for the introduction of EVS. However, the Ministry believes the risks are minimal from the introduction of the new requirements.
However, the interviewed producers insist that the introduction of EVS faces a shortage of supply of dairy products in the Federal network and the complete stop of supply in brick and mortar stores. In addition, you can “suffer” the public catering enterprises and public institutions, including kindergartens and schools.
