RIGA, September 6. /TASS /. Latvia’s milk processing company Food Union has begun regular supplies of dairy products to China, the company said in a statement.
"Exports of dairy products in China is the second consecutive step of Food Union aimed at entering that market. Although it took us longer than to start of ice cream exports this is definitely a more significant event for the enterprise in terms of volumes. If we continue to work as it was intended, and increase the volume of exports, China will soon be one of our most important export markets," Normunds Stanevich, Chairman of the Board of Rigas piena kombinats, one of the enterprises of the Food Union, said as quoted by the press release.
In 2015, the company began to export ice cream to China and opened a store in Shanghai. In 2016, it increased exports of ice cream and began to supply ultra-heat treated milk.
In 2017, the Food Union plans to start exporting ultra-heat treated yoghurt, soft cheese and other products to China.
According to the company, over the years, China may become one of the top five export countries for Food Union, "which will allow the company to partially offset the loss incurred as a result of the Russian embargo on imports of dairy products."
Food Union was established in 2011 by Andrei Beshmelnitsky, one of the founders of Russia’s Unimilk. Currently, the group consists of seven companies located in Latvia, Estonia, Denmark, Norway and Romania.
