The Far East is counting on the supply of meat from Latin America and on the development of its own production.

After sanctions imposed on the import of agricultural products imposed by the Russian Federation, Far Eastern meat processing enterprises can receive raw materials from Brazil, Argentina and other Latin American countries, Interfax reports with reference to the President of the Association of Meat Processing Enterprises of Primorsky Krai Pavel Kitaev.

“If we talk about the Far East, then this (the share of imported raw materials - IF) is not less than 95%. Unlike the western part of Russia, where animal husbandry is quite well developed, in the Far East it is developing poorly,” Kitaev said.

In this regard, he believes that Brazil and Argentina will be fully able to compensate for the costs that are possible in the Far East. Nowadays, DFO meat processing enterprises operate mainly for raw materials from Australia and Canada. At present, the association of meat processing enterprises of Primorye is preparing relevant proposals.

“As for Primorye, we pinned certain hopes on the emergence of two new large pig farms, but due to the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in early summer, these plans have been shifted,” he said.
