The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) made the decision to cancel restrictions which were introduced earlier against 29 dairy producers in New Zealand for imports of a number milk and diary products on August 17.

The list of ingredients includes anhydrous milk fat, whey protein concentrate, and milk protein concentrate, which are in very high demand and are practically not produced in Russia, the Rosselkhoznadzor statement said.

The restrictions were lifted after analysis of the materials presented by the veterinary service in New Zealand.

Imports of dairy products from New Zealand to Russia were restricted in August, 2013, in connection with the detection of botulinum toxin in milk products from a number of New Zealand companies.
