Russia lifts ban on Croatia’s Agrokor imports

MOSCOW: Several Croatian companies, including units of privately-held concern Agrokor, can once again sell their products in Russia after it raised a ban introduced earlier this month on imports by a number of EU-based companies citing safety considerations, Zagreb-based media reported.

Poultry producers Koka and Perutnina Ptuj-Pipo, beverage group Vindija, food producer Belje, meat processing firm PIK Vrbovec, canned fish producers Sardina and Cromaris have had their licences for imports into Russia restored, news agency Hina reported, citing Croatia’s foreign ministry.

According to the foreign ministry, the companies were banned from selling their produce in Russia on February 8, along with other European firms, due to safety measures on imports of agricultural and food products. Croatian media have speculated that the ban was a consequence of sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU.
