Russia to resume imports of vegetables from Bulgaria as of July 29

MOSCOW, July 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Federal Service for the Protection of Consumer Rights /Rospotrebnadzor/ has issued permission to restart the imports and sales of vegetables from Bulgaria to Russia as of July 29 upon presentation of the necessary certificates.

The latter should be issued “by the sanitary control agencies of the producer country” and guarantee the absence of the Escherichia coli bacteria in the products subject to exports to Russia.

Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor issued permissions to resume the imports of vegetables from Belgium, Greece, Denmark, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, France, the Czech Republic, Italy, and Hungary.

“The special procedures for admittance of vegetables produced in the European Union to Russia’s territory will remain in effect until the spread of the disease caused by E. coli ceases completely and no new cases of it are registered over a period of ten days,” Rospotrebnadzor said in an official report.
