Russia increased halal meat exports almost thrice



In 2017th the export of halal meat from Russia amounted to 45 thousand tons, which is three times more than in 2014th – which had 15 thousand tons. In general, Russia exports about 125 thousand tons of meat per year, which means that Halal currently has less than 30% of all exports.

European analysts only voiced the forecast figures of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia on the possibility to increase the export of poultry to 370 thousand tons by 2020th and earn $ 400 million from sales.

«Around 75 to 80% of poultry, which Russia plans to export by 2020th, will be sold as halal. To this end, we are launching the largest foreign campaign in the states’ history to promote Russian poultry in Muslim markets, which meets the highest standards of halal, «the European media quoted Aidar Gazizov, general director of the International Center for Normalization and Certification Halal.

The largest Russian exporters are the GAC “Resource” and “Eurodon”. Recently, they were able to export poultry to the markets of Saudi Arabia and Iran. Now, officials are making efforts to expand exports to countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia. These are very dynamically developing markets in the context of Halal exports since almost 230 million Muslims live there, who are consumers of Russian products.

Russian Minister of Agriculture took part in the opening ceremony of the Russian-Moroccan business forum as part of the business mission of Russian exporters to Morocco.

“Not only the growths of volumes are important, but also export diversification in terms of geography and commodity composition. We are ready to supply the Moroccan market with wheat, sunflower oil, sweets, sugar, meat products and ice -cream ”- said Tkachev.

It is specified that Russia continues to be one of the main suppliers of soft wheat to Morocco. In 2016th, Russia supplied the country with 735,000 tons of wheat worth $ 116 million. The Minister also noted that the bilateral trade turnover in 2016th had increased by almost a third and amounted to 1.3 billion dollars.

Export of agricultural products from Russia grew by 20%

Ткачев Александр


According to the results of the year, the export of agricultural products and provisions could reach $ 20 billion against $ 17 billion in 2016, to date, shipments abroad rose by 20% to $ 11.5 billion, Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev said during the Agribusiness Forum «Leadership of the Russian Agroindustrial Complex: how to ensure quality growth «, which was held within the framework of the exhibition» Golden Autumn «.

The implementation of the priority project for the development of agro-export will significantly increase the supply of domestic products to foreign markets, at the same time it is necessary to stake not only on raw materials but also processed products. Despite the fact that due to the record indicators on the harvest, the export potential of the agricultural sector has increased, domestic points of growth continue to dominate in domestic agriculture.

Among the tasks for the near future, the Minister noted an increase in the yield capacity and productivity of livestock and poultry, the introduction of new technologies, the modernization of the agro-industrial complex, and the increase in labor productivity. He also drew attention to the need to reduce dependence on foreign means of production, in particular, seeds and genetic material. «We are 50% dependent on import seeds, if from abroad, for some reason, we do not supply a broiler hatching egg — we will lose the industry,» Tkachev stressed. — We do not have enough seeds of vegetables, potatoes, sugar beets; our dependence on foreign seeds reaches 90%. We have to make a breakthrough in this direction; this is a niche in which you can earn. »

If the supply of the market at the expense of domestic production has already reached the required threshold of the Food Security Doctrine or is close to it, for a number of food products, in the segments like milk, vegetables and fruits, another five to seven years of work are needed, the head of the agrarian department estimated. And in order to successfully pass this path, it is necessary to maintain state support. «Without state support, projects in dairy farming pay for 15 years, and almost all this time they are unprofitable or work at zero, and with subsidies they pay off in seven to eight years, which receive a profitability of 10%,» said Tkachev.
