The organization approached the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation with the similar request.

“We’re seeking for assistance in search for new business partners in Asia region,” said Tatyana Kolchanova.

The offer arose from the challenges currently affecting the delivery of these goods from the European countries.  Although these products don’t fall under the scope of new sanctions applied against Russia, there are some transportation disruptions taking place. According to the estimates of the Union, the dietary pet foods will be out of stock in 1,5 months.

In order to accelerate new partnerships, the Union proposes to establish a simplified certification procedure for foreign suppliers of these products. They also suggest to develop a support program for local manufacturers, interested in construction of specialty pet food processing facilities in Russian Federation.

Tatiana Kolchanova also notes, “Actually, national manufacturers are willing to launch the production of specialty and dietary pet foods, but such establishments are not entitled to any grants and benefits, as are agricultural producers, for example. We suggest to provide for grant funding and soft loans to support construction of new specialty pet food production facilities".
