Rosselkhoznadzor tightens control over fruit and vegetable imports from Turkey

According to Rosselkhoznadzor (Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance of the Russian Federation), there were 195 cases of detection of quarantine objects in fruit and vegetable produce imported from Turkey, reports Kazakh-Zerno.

Taking those facts into account, Rosselkhzoznadzor has undertaken measures to tighten control over imports of fruits and vegetables in view of phytosanitary risks linked with frequent cases of detection of quarantine objects, suppliers and types of quarantineable produce imported from Turkey.

“Rosselkhoznadroz has informed the Food and Control Directorate of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock of the Republic of Turkey about detected cases of violation during importation of quarantineable produce”, the Service concludes.
