Russian companies began to export meat to Turkey. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Gordeev.
During a working trip to the Tver region on July 27, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation told reporters about the start of Russian meat deliveries to the Turkish market. He also noted that there are already direct applications for the supply of Russian meat to the Middle East.
“I can say the first consignments of beef were delivered to the Turkish market. Great perspective on poultry. So we understand that Turkish farmers also have strong enough positions, but it is possible to balance so as to complement each other
There are already direct applications from both Turkey and many countries of the Middle East related to the supply of beef. We still hope that the Chinese market will open for us, there are prospects. ”
The topic of opening the Turkish market for Russian companies was raised at the highest level a day earlier, on July 26.
