Belarusian producers of meat and dairy products have been tasked to toughen control over the quality of raw materials and finished products, the head of the main department of foreign trade at the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Belarus, Alexei Bogdanov, told reporters, BelTA has learned.
The Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry noted that domestic companies should use the methods developed by the National Research Institute for Veterinary Virology and Microbiology of Russia. This method allows detecting the African swine fever virus genome.
In October Russia reported three incidents of ASF virus genome in Belarusian meat products. The virus genome was found in the products of the meat-packing plants from Orsha, Minsk and Mogilev.
