Lukashenko’s statements about the lack of meat production in Russia

According to the National Meat Association, the “head of the neighboring state” does not have reliable information on meat production in Russia.

This was stated in an interview with Interfax by the executive director of the National Meat Association (NMA) Sergey Yushin. He noted that in addition to meeting domestic needs, Russia began exporting meat to other markets. At the same time, the Belarusian market has become one of the directions of pork export from Russia.

“The head of the neighboring state gave such an assessment of the situation in the Russian meat market, apparently based on incomplete, one-sided and incorrect information voiced on behalf of some Russian meat processors who were concerned about the seasonal change in prices for Russian pork.

The shelves of Russian stores are literally bursting with domestic meat products, which account for more than 98% in retail. Huge selection for every taste and budget. But just ten years ago, Russia was one of the largest importers of meat in the world. Only in beef, the share of imports is about 15%, but this certainly does not threaten food security.

The quality of Russian beef is also growing, and a number of countries have opened markets for it, including demanding customers such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Foreign airlines are ready to buy Russian beef for their business class passengers. In addition, Russian companies have learned how to produce real pink diet veal using the latest technologies. This product is also on store shelves.

By the way, Belarus has become one of the directions of Russian pork exports, although a few years ago our neighbors imported about 60 thousand tons of pork a year into Russia. Now, these deliveries are virtually nonexistent.

So the rumors about the lack of meat on the Russian market are greatly exaggerated. ”
