DUSHANBE, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Tajikistan has become the fifth CIS country, after Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Moldova, to raise the problem of the quality of confectionery manufactured by the Ukrainian company Roshen. Tajikistan’s epidemiological service will check the quality of Roshen products, a spokesman for the Tajik sanitary inspection said on Friday.
“Our inspection has information from Russia’s consumer right protection authority that suspended imports of these products to Russia,” the spokesman said. “Following this signal, we must check the quality of the chocolate the Ukrainian manufacturer exports to our country. “According to our Russian colleagues, Roshen products violate fat content and ogranoleptic requirements and are of inferior quality. Apart from that, Roshen milk chocolate was found to contain benzopyrene, a substance of the first hazard class.”
“Tajikistan is not a member of the World Trade Organization, so before taking any decision we must thoroughly analyze the situation, make tests and arrived at corresponding conclusions,” the spokesman stressed.
Ukraine is among Tajikistan’s top twenty trade partners. Roshen confectionery enjoys stably high demand in that country.
