According to European Commission PR, these are the Lianozovo Dairy Combine of Moscow; the Altaikholod, based in Barnaul, Altai Territory in West Siberia's south; and the Lipetsk Refrigerated Food Combine on Central Russia's Lipetsk. The three will appear on a unified registrar of companies authorised to export milk and dairy products to the European Union.
The permit became possible after Russian veterinarian agencies vouched to the European Commission to comply with EU produce safety standards.
The authorisation is coming as another proof of good EU-Russian partnership, says David Byrne, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection. He is sure mutual trade will make progress, the partners complying with each other's food security laws.
Russian exports will not start before an official EU publication carries the committee resolution. It is expected to appear in print within a few weeks.
