Georgian wine is rushing into Russia2013-02-11 17:03
Departure of the Rospotrebnadzor experts to Georgia will be delayed at least for a week, since the Georgian side belatedly handed over to the Russian agency the list of companies that the Russian experts could examine. Meanwhile, the head of the National Wine Agency of Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia Levan Davitashvili says that at the Georgian wine market there is no prominent company unwilling to export products to Russia.
Import of Georgian mineral water "Borjomi" and Georgian wines was banned by the Rospotrebnadzor in the spring of 2006, after the aggravation of Georgian-Russian relations. The official reason for the ban was the claim to the quality. However, in early February this year, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Gennady Onishchenko and the chairman of the National Wine Agency of Georgia Levan Davitashvili, after the bilateral talks in Moscow, stated that the embargo on Georgian products could be lifted this spring. As announced by the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Russian experts are planning to inspect more than 60 Georgian companies.
Rospotrebnadzor has stated that the Georgian side had been delaying time to resume the wine supply to Russia. "We have to ascertain that the Georgian side is not complying the terms of the achieved agreements. At the same time, Rospotrebnadzor has already formed three teams of experts that are ready to depart for the Georgian company within two or three days after receipt of information from the enterprises (companies)", said in the agency.
As reported by the Rospotrebnadzor, on February 4, the day of signing the agreement, the Georgian delegation was handed over a general list of Georgian enterprises, producers of alcoholic beverages and mineral water, which had submitted applications to the Rospotrebnadzor, as well as a list of manufacturers that had submitted not only the applications, but also the documents on the safety and quality of products in 2007-2013, the Prime reported.
Today the Rospotrebnadzor finally got from Georgia a list of 79 companies that were willing to take Russian inspection, but its departure is likely to be postponed until next week. "There is a chance of postponing the departure of Russian experts, at least for a week", said Gennady Onishchenko. Rospotrebnadzor head explained that the agency needed a few days to study the list, belatedly handed over by the Georgian side, the Interfax reported.
