Roshen will report to the Russian Federal Consumer Rights Protection and Human Health Control Service (Rospotrebnadzor) in Kiev
According to the minister of agrarian policy Anatoliy Prisyazhnyuk, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Gennediy Onischenko will personally visit Kiev next Monday to check if Roshen meets the requirements related to the quality of goods.
In the beginning of June Rospotrebnadzor raised a claim against the sweets of Ukrainian factory Roshen and banned their shipment to Russia on June 29. The reason for the ban was failure of the sweets and the chocolate to correspond to the declared parameters. Several weeks ago it appeared that 90 percent of the sweets do not comply with the requirements, stipulated in the law "On the Protection of the Consumer Rights".
However, the State Committee on Standardization of the Republic of Belarus, which according to the experts uses more strict standardization rules than its Russian counterpart, had found no deviations from the norm in Roshen produce, as announced by the representative of the committee during online conference on October 7.
Representatives of Roshen estimate that the ban on shipment of their produce to the Russian Federation will cost Ukraine 125 million dollars per annum.
