Russia gains access to the Vietnamese pork market

Russian pork is back in the Vietnamese market, according to an announcement made by Rosselkhoznadzor, the Russian governmental Agency for Agriculture, reports Reuters. Officials said that pork and by-products are to be exported under the terms of the agreement.
The agency did not say which Russian companies were eligible to supply their produce to Vietnam. Russia’s biggest producers of pork include Cherkizovo, Rusagro and privately held group Miratorg. So far, Cherkizovo seems the best prepared to respond to the Vietnamese market. In a press release a month ago, the company mentioned that is ready to sell in the Asian markets "pig's ears and trotters, which will find their way into local cuisine. For example, pig’s ears are boiled with sugar, soy sauce and spices, anise and spring onions, and served in slices. Similarly, trotters are braised in soy sauce, spices, and wine. Filipinos like breaded and fried trotters, as well as barbecued pig intestines and hearts".
The biggest pork producers in Russian have increased their investments in this sector in the last 10 months hoping to open the Chinese pork market as the neighboring country is confronted with multiple ASF outbreaks. The disease is as well present in Russia for almost 11 years now and the latest outbreaks were reported in October in Siberia.
