In Primorsky Krai, there is again a shortage of cheap vegetables. The products that were brought into the region after the opening of the border with China are almost over, and new shipments are not arriving. This time, the supply is prevented by the quarantine service of the PRC.

According to the press service of the regional government, the Chinese side requires suppliers to provide certificates of origin for products, as well as loading only one name of goods into one vehicle. Experts are sure that if these requirements continue, Chinese vegetables will not come to Primorye.

Already at a food base they are reporting a shortage. After the border was opened, 350 tons of products were brought to the region, but it was almost over. Vegetables from Turkey, Israel, Kazakhstan, Iran, Uzbekistan go on sale, however, due to complex logistics, they cost much more.

The authorities of the Primorsky Territory intend to initiate a working meeting of the Rosselkhoznadzor with the quarantine service of China and to ensure the resumption of supplies of fruit and vegetable products.

The shortage of fruits and vegetables in the Far Eastern Federal District was the result of the coronavirus epidemic. The borders with China were closed and cheap products stopped coming to the regions of the Far East, which caused increase prices both at wholesale bases and in retail. FAS organized monitoring and began to punish entrepreneurs who overpriced.
