Upon successful audit Russia could ease the embargo imposed on Hungarian food processing plants

Saturday, April 11, 2015

State Secretary Gyula Budai responsible for managing embargo related issues told MTI in Moscow after the Russian-Hungarian Intergovernmental Committee meeting held on April 9-10 in Kazan that the Russian side officially informed Hungarian officials that very soon Russian food safety inspectors arrive in Hungary to inspect 22 meat processing plants.

If the audit becomes successful Hungarian companies can resume exports to the Russian market immediately said the secretary.

The Russian side officially informed Hungary that the audit will take place on April 20 to 30.

All 22 meat processing plants have been audited before the embargo was imposed on them due to the ramifications of the Ukrainian crisis; then, all of those plants received permits by Russian food safety inspector to export their products to the Russian market.
