ABH Miratorg, the biggest Russian high-quality supplier of beef meat, is interested in exporting meat to Japan and is ready for inspection by Japanese specialists, said Vice President of ABH Miratorg Alexander Nikitin in an interview with Sputnik.

Alexander Nikitin notified full readiness for the inspection of Japanese veterinary services as it will be not the first foreign check for the agribusiness holding.

“We have been inspected by veterinary services of China, UAE, Vietnam, the European Union, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. We are a vertically integrated holding and control the entire chain of our production from security to quality. That is to say, our control starts from pastures and grain growing and ends with close supervision of meat package and distribution,” Nikitin tells Sputnik.

Talking about Miratorg’s concrete production, the company plans to export pork and, of course, beef named "Black Angus," as this kind of meat coincides with Japanese tastes.
