GLOBAL - Poland hopes to start exporting hatching eggs and young poultry to the Russian Federation in the coming months.

Meat Russia reports the Federal Agency for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor) announcing that Poland has expressed its interest in supply of hatching eggs, day-old chicks, ducklings, turkey chicks and goslings to the Russian Federation.

The parties have agreed that Polish Veterinary Service will provide a list of Polish poultry breeding farms and Russian importers interested in supply of their products, for examination of Rosselkhoznadzor officials. The parties also agreed to hold the working group next meeting on veterinary issue in Moscow at the end of May 2009.

Russia has expressed concerns regarding the detection of any violations in product supply from Poland. In particular, in some cases products were shipped from the enterprises not licensed by Russia. Information on identification tags did not always correspond to data specified in veterinary certificates. The Polish party was entitled to hold the corresponding inspections and take measures for preventing such cases in future. Veterinary certificates on cattle, horse meat, raw meat exported from Poland to the Russian Federation are to be agreed in the near future as well.

An agreement over new Russian technical regulations for milk and dairy products by Polish party was also achieved, according to Meat Russia.
