“We do not see any serious obstacles to this, we need only to agree some veterinary issues,” said Skrynnik.

According to Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor), reported through MeatInternational, in 2007 the veterinary services of Russia and Canada signed a veterinary certificate for the supply of boneless beef and raw beef meat products from Canada.

Currently, 116 Canadian companies specialising in the production of pork, beef and poultry have the right to export their products to Russia.

Skrynnik also noted that livestock breeding continues to be one of the main priorities of the Russia-Canada relations in the sphere of agroindustrial complex.
