OTTAWA, April 24. /TASS/. The president of Canada Port International, Jacques Pomerleau, said some Canadian trading houses were planning to import pork from Russia.
A large Russian community in Canada is always looking for traditional Russian products, which are hard to find in Canada, he told TASS, saying that this offered additional possibilities for potential Russian suppliers.
The official said Russian products needed to be in full conformity with Canadian requirements to imported products. He said Canada yearly buys more than 200,000 tons of pork across the world.
Early in April, deputy head of Russia’s agricultural watchdog (Rosselkhoznadzor) Yevgeny Nepoklonov, met in Moscow with Natalile Bechamp, Minister Counsellor for Commercial Affairs of Canadian Embassy to Russia, discussing Canada’s plans to import Russian pork.
"Active work is already under way on the issue. The Canadian veterinary service will receive information guaranteeing safety of products, in particular in view of outbreaks of African swine fever in Russia," Sergey Strokov, counsellor of the Russian Embassy to Canada, told TASS.
