BAKKAFROST: Temporary closure of FO 125 Glyvrar to export to Russia

Report this content

Russian authorities Rosselkhoznadzor have imposed restrictions on import from AUT 125 Glyvrar. The stated reason is found of some bacteria in a sample of off cuts, that was imported to Russia.

Faroese Food Authorities Heilsufrøðisliga Starvsstova will inspect and go through all documentation at the factory AUT 125 today and respond to Russelkoznador next week.

The consequence of the issue is that export of off cuts to Russia from Aut 125 Glyvrar will stop from 23 November 2018 until further decision has been taken.

Bakkafrost will be able to reallocate our sales to other markets.
