Russia’s phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor has lifted the ban on apple imports from five more Azerbaijani enterprises, starting from September 30. The decision was made based on the results of the quarantine phytosanitary examination of samples of products selected during the joint video inspections, and under the guarantees of Azerbaijan’s Food Safety Agency.
Rosselkhoznadzor allowed apple exports to Russia from 70 Azerbaijani enterprises. The export potential of enterprises that are allowed to export apples is 153,397 tons, which amounts to 229 percent of the volume of apple products exported to Russia in 2020 (66,924 tons).
The Azerbaijani Food Safety Agency and relevant agencies are taking joint measures to lift restrictions on tomatoes and apple exports from Azerbaijan to Russia.
