In Vladivostok, a meeting of the Commission on Food Security

Today, 5 November, under the leadership of the Governor of Primorsky Territory Vladimir Miklushevsky, a meeting of the Commission on Food Security and Import Substitution of Goods in the Territory was held.

The governor noted that the result of the commission’s activities should be not only a response to the sanctions imposed on Russia, but also an elaborated way to develop its own production in the region.

“The decisions of the commission should serve as a signal for all sectoral departments to correct state programs. It is quite obvious that Primorye producers can be supported in different ways - financially, organizationally, legally, ”stressed Vladimir Miklushevsky.

Vice-Governor of Primorsky Krai Sergey Sidorenko reported on what measures have already been taken to increase production volumes for the main group of food products.

So, this year, the task of producing early grains as the basis for compound feed was completed - wheat, barley and oats were produced by 65 thousand tons. This is twice as much as last year.

“Soybeans have already been produced 207 thousand tons, we expect to put only 250 thousand tons in the bins. This way the two of us will exceed the best indicator of the Soviet era. Such successes were achieved thanks to the regional program aimed at technical and technological modernization. At the same time, the main increase was obtained not due to the growth of areas, but due to the improvement of the quality of work and the introduction of technology for more highly productive varieties, ”said Sergei Sidorenko.

The volume of buckwheat production has been increased by more than a thousand tons, and potatoes by 17 thousand tons. The harvesting of vegetables is coming to an end - already now the total volume of production has been increased by 8 thousand tons.

"Saturation of the domestic market with locally produced products will significantly affect the pricing policy," said the vice-governor.

Despite the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Primorye, it was possible to increase the number of pigs. In the near future, by attracting a large investor to the territory of the region, it is planned to increase the number of pigs by about 10.

“The total slaughtering volume of 1,1 million heads per year will not only meet the need for pork in Primorye, but also make the region a stable supplier of pork to neighboring regions,” the vice-governor emphasized.

It is noted that for poultry and pork meat, dependence on imported products will be minimized in the coming years.

To date, in the province for 3 thousand tons increased the production of poultry meat, eggs. For the next 2 the task is to increase the production of poultry meat by 10 thousand tons, which will ensure Primorye chicken for 85 percent.

The implementation of effective projects in the field of dairy farming also continues. In the near future in the region will be built groups of three and two pig farms on 1800 and 1200 heads, respectively. And also created small family farms with a full level of mechanization, 19 of them are already under construction. These measures will allow for four years two to increase the level of self-sufficiency in milk. Today, this figure is about 30 percent.

Meat cattle breeding, according to the vice-governor, is the most difficult unit.

“We have already planned several projects, but we will be able to reach the level of provision of at least 70 percent no earlier than in 6-7 years. Large one-time investments will be required, a serious feed base, trained specialists, as well as the delivery of cattle to enterprises ready for the production of beef at a modern level are required.

It is emphasized that the stated rate of increase in production is possible only if the regional state programs are aimed at supporting priority areas.

“Taking into account the wishes of the municipalities, we have adjusted a number of state programs, including making an amendment to the budget. Our priority is the production of livestock products and the creation of modern cattle stalls. Investors come to us because our state program is one of the most competitive. And with the influx of modern investors, we will definitely implement the set tasks, ”said Sergei Sidorenko.

During the meeting, Vladimir Miklushevsky stressed the importance of creating an ad-hoc working group on monitoring prices for socially important food products.

Also, on his initiative, a special commission from the representatives of the regional department of licensing and trade, the antimonopoly service and the department of Rospotrebnadzor leaves for places to check complaints of citizens for a sharp increase in prices.

Director of the department Elena Koval stressed that due to the embargo, there is no shortage of goods in the province.

“Moreover, we see a tendency to increase the demand of the population for locally produced goods,” she said.

According to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, Primorsky Krai is in 66th place out of 85 in the rating of subjects in terms of prices for the entire group of food products included in the consumer basket. For socially significant goods - by 57 out of 85.

“At the same time, the 85th place belongs to the region of the leader, the first - to the most lagging behind. Primorye has a very good indicator, ”emphasized Elena Koval.

The head of Primorye emphasized that everything possible is being done in the province to curb unreasonable price increases.

“Our task is to influence by administrative measures where we see unfair competition, collusion, unreasonable use of extra charges, the desire to make money on the difficulties that have arisen. We must protect our citizens. And the market regulation consists in holding agricultural fairs throughout the region. Thus, agricultural producers, working without intermediaries, can sell local products at reduced prices, ”he said.
