MOSCOW, March 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russian experts of Rospotrebnadzor (Consumer Rights Watchdog) are planning to visit Ukraine next week to check the quality of cheese production in Ukraine, Rospotrebnadzor Chief Gennady Onischenko told a press conference on Wednesday.
"We are prepared to begin the work since March 19. If we receive confirmation that Ukraine is ready to receive us we will go," Onishchenko said.
The checks will be made at three out of seven cheese production plants which cheese was banned in Russia. The three biggest plants account for around 60 percent of products supplied to the Russian market.
Onishchenko claims these plants lack technological control, which offers a loophole for abuse. "We will check raw components used for cheese production, see whether these plants have qualified workers and then pass our "verdict," Onishchenko said.
