The Ministry of Agriculture has determined the import volume of whey into the Russian Federation

The Ministry of Agriculture has determined the import volume of demineralized whey powder with a demineralization level of 90% to Russia for 2022. This whey is needed for the production of infant formula (breast milk substitutes).

The permissible import volume of this product into the territory of Russia this year will be 3361 tons. A year earlier, the ministry allowed to import 2 thousand tons.

The second draft order of the department defines the procedure for confirming the intended use of whey. The importer must submit supporting documents to the Ministry by June 1, 2022. The application is accompanied by information about the importing company, the name of whey and the estimated import volume, information about the supplier, the contract and the certificate of state registration of this product. The application will be reviewed within two weeks after registration. After that, the importer will receive a document confirming the intended purpose of the product used. According to it, it will be possible to import whey to the Russian Federation until December 31, 2022.

In addition, the manufacturer will have to provide the Ministry with information on the volumes of baby food produced from imported whey by February 1, 2022.

It is worth reminding, that the main producers of whey powder are France, Italy and Germany. A food embargo was imposed on the supply of products from these countries. The exception is demineralized whey. Every year, the Ministry of Agriculture approves the volumes of products allowed for import into Russia.
