Russian Agriculture Ministry wants dairy farmers to report the percentage of vegetable oil

The Russian Agriculture Ministry suggests milk producers from the Eurasian Economic Union should be required to label non-lacquered fat in the products. This was announced by the first Deputy Minister of Agriculture at the International Conference on Food Safety and Risk Analysis. The proposal to amend the Customs Union Dairy Regulation was submitted to the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is suggested that producers share the percentage of non-milk fat and explain their composition.

The initiative aims to limit the possibilities of misleading consumers.

Earlier, the Deputy Agriculture Minister told journalists that Kazakhstan is deterring the adoption of palm oil products in the Eurasian Economic Union. The Russian agrarian ministry planned to mark in 2017 the labeling of palm fat dairy products on the front of the pack and to prohibit these products from being called “dairy”.

The question of labeling is currently being discussed at the Eurasian Economic Commission.
