“The list is currently in work, and such a proposal was sent to the Rosselkhoznadzor, Rospotrebnadzor, and the Ministry of Industry and Trade. And we found support in every place. There are plans to make this list open to the general public so that both retailers that purchase products from suppliers and national services that purchase products for social institutions could make use of it,” Oleg Pavlov, chairman of the Public Consumer Initiative, said in an interview with Veterinary Medicine and Life.

According to him, this will be a powerful tool in the prevention of adulteration in the food market.

“The list will include manufacturers that have been officially accused of food fraud by the Rosselkhoznadzor or Rospotrebnadzor at least twice. The criteria will be simple and clear,” Pavlov explained.

The list will be made available to the general public, among others, via the Public Consumer Initiative’s website, said the chairman. According to him, the list will be compiled within a month. “We have already reached the final stage in our work. A huge amount of data was processed, including the results of recent inspections and supply chains in which these manufacturers are involved. I believe we’ll be able to publish it shortly,” said Oleg Pavlov.
