MEXICO CITY, February 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Mexico exported more than 28,500 tons of meat to Russia in 2011. As a result Russia occupied the second place among the main importers of meat products from this Latin American country, says a report of the Mexican Ministry of Agriculture, which the ITAR-TASS office received in Mexico City.
The export of meat to Russia from Mexico increased by more than seven times if compared with the numbers from 2010 when the volume of Mexican supplies amounted only to 3,850 tons, the document notes. In 2011, a total of 26,300 tons of beef alone were supplied to Russia.
The United States remains to be the main importer of Mexican meat products, however, the volume of Russian purchases continues to increase. As Mexican producers believe, the level of supplies of meat to Russia in the current year will considerably increase and reach 35,000 tons.
At present, 16 Mexican enterprises have official permissions to supply meat products to Russia, and in the near future, another three are expected to obtain such a right.
According to the estimates of the Mexican side, Russia ranks seventh among the world's largest meat importers. Mexico hopes to occupy one of the leading places among the countries, which supply this product to the Russian market.
