Restrictions on the supply to Russia
18 March 2021
In early December 2020, restrictions were imposed on the supply of tomatoes to Russia from Azerbaijan. This was due to the periodic detection of the South American tomato moth in the products of some manufacturers. For the import of Azerbaijani tomatoes, a permit from the Rosselkhoznadzor is required. It is issued after the" Food Safety Agency " of Azerbaijan sends a letter to the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision confirming the compliance of products and greenhouses with all phyto-sanitary standards and requirements. To date, only a few companies have permission from the Rosselkhoznadzor to supply Azerbaijani tomatoes.
