MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. Insufficient legislation on state control of grain quality may undermine Russia’s grain exports, agriculture watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said prior to parliamentary hearings on the issue.
According to a report, prepared by the agricultural watchdog for the hearings, the legal gap may "entail non-fulfillment of guarantees of supplies of quality products to the international grain market and create serious risks for the development of the state agricultural complex and the country’s economy in general."
Besides, Russia may lose its status of one of the world’s biggest grain exporters due to lax quality control, the report reads.
The report also says that the unsolved issue also affects the quality of bread and flour for Russian consumers.
"The number of consumers’ complaints for poor quality of wheat and flour has also increased," Rosselkhoznadzor said, citing the lack of unified system of quality control of grain and related products as one of possible reasons. "This poses a health threat for the Russian population and also contributes to Russia being driven out of the list of exporters to the global market."
In order to deal with the situation, Rosselkhoznadzor suggests setting up a unified system of quality control for the entire production chain of grain and grain products.
