MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. The number of Russian exporters of animal products has increased by more than 20% since the beginning of the year and now exceeds 6,000, an official with the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance told TASS on Thursday.
"The list of companies exporting products of animal origin is constantly replenished. In 2015, 1,123 Russian companies-exporters were added to it," Yulia Melano, an official with the regulator said.
According to her, at present in the list of exporters includes over 6,000 Russian companies.
Of the more than 1,100 Russian companies which received an approval to enter foreign markets this year, 473 companies plan to supply their products to the CIS countries and 650 — to non-CIS countries. In particular, 33 companies received the right to supply food products to the EU.
In total, 909 Russian companies have the right to export products to the EU, the official with the regulator said.
In addition to the products of animal origin, Russia exports grains, vegetables and some types of fruits. In this segment there is no need to accredit specific suppliers because a permission is granted for a certain product, rather than to an individual company.
According to Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev in the end of 2014 exports of food products reached almost $20 billion. Grain is one of the main export products of Russia today — the country exports 30 million tons of grain annually.
The minister said that Russia should learn to export processed products with a high added value. There is a high potential for export of beef, pork, wine, processed grains, vegetable oil and sugar, the minister said.
