Latvian-Russian working group established to define benzopyrene limits in canned sprats
Soon Latvia will receive Russian experts coming to the country in order to check Latvian seafood producers OOO Gamma A (ltd) and AO Brīvais Vilnis which have been earlier banned to export their products to Russia, according to media reports.
Latvian Minister of Agriculture has petitioned Russia's Minister of Agriculture Alexander Gordeyev for speeding up veterinary checks of Latvian producers by the Russian authorities. The Russian ministry has replied that the nation's Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Rosselkhoznadzor is getting ready for a trip to Latvia.
A Latvian-Russian working group has been established in order to harmonize allowable content of benzopyrene as set by Russia and EU.
