GORKI, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) and the Russian consumer rights watchdog (Rospotrebnadzor) should fight more actively against the falsifications of dairy products in Russia, supporting domestic producers, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.
Russia “has an awful situation with an unfair competition inside the market over the falsifications of dairy products that oust 30% of our domestic dairy products from our own market,” a member of the Russian dairy company board of directors and the chairman of the board of the agro-industrial association of the Customs Union, Andrei Danilenko, said at a meeting involving representatives of the expert community. “This is a purely administrative problem of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service and Rospotrebnadzor,” Danilenko said.
“I would like to support you that supervising structures, namely FAS and Rospotrebnadzor should take a more active position in the struggle against falsifications and in the ousting of our products from the market by Western counterparts, which have an absolutely poor quality sometimes,” Medvedev said.
Meanwhile, the prime minister approved the idea of a program for the support to domestic produce.
“It is going without saying that the whole world deals with this. This makes part of patriotism and a special attitude to your country and the proudness for those products, which you produce,” the premier said. He noted that “now this produce already of high quality can hardly be compared with that of the Soviet times, therefore, the program should doubtlessly work.”
“The per capita milk consumption in Russia is much lower than the medical norm and European standards,” Danilenko said. “Everywhere in the world the practice of social advertising of milk and dairy products, particularly at schools, exists, and food ration cards are also introduced. We offer to use these instruments as much as possible for the promotion of domestic produce on our own market, as other countries do it,” he underlined.
