Restrictions on meat export to Russia lifted for two major meat business operators
The approval of the Jyväskylä production facility of Saarioisten Lihanjalostus Oy is under review by the Customs Union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. The temporary restrictions imposed on Atria Suomi Oy's second pork production facility in Nurmo remain in force.
These decisions are based on the outcome of the inspection visit conducted by Rosselhoznadzor at the meat facilities in question during 8.-12.11.2010.
