Belarus Considers Buying Russian Pork

10 April 2015

BELARUS - Belarus is considering buying pork from Russia due to an increasing demand from the Belarusian meat-processing enterprises.

The possibility of buying pork from a number of Russian companies, including the Russian agribusiness holding company Miratorg, for the sake of satisfying demand of Belarusian processing enterprises is under consideration, BelTA learned from Alexei Bogdanov, Head of the Central Office for Foreign Economic Activities of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry.

The official reminded that Belarus has not been importing Russian pork recently because Belarus has been able to satisfy the domestic demand on its own.

Apart from that, deliveries of pork and even fodder of animal origin from Russia have been suspended due to the spread of African swine fever in the Russian Federation, reports BelTA.
