Russia increased halal meat exports almost thrice

halal

 

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.
