The first batch of whole milk went from Primorsky Krai to China

The first ever batch of milk from Russia went to China through a border crossing in the Primorsky Territory. This was announced on the sidelines of the Fifth Eastern Economic Forum by the Director General of the Far East Investment Promotion and Export Support Agency (ANO IPA) Leonid Petukhov.

“China is the largest partner of the Far East. Chinese investors are present in almost all industries. There are two types of projects, which, in my opinion, are significant. We are seeing great progress in the aquaculture industry. Chinese investors come, invest. A special electronic card has been created that simplifies this process. The second block is everything related to agriculture, and first of all, dairy farming. We are interested in projects that allow us to create added value here in the Far East. We find partner understanding with Chinese partners - Zhongding Dairy Farming Co., Ltd. and the Mengniu Dairy Group. In June, in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Xi Jinping, an understanding agreement was signed between Steppe X Milk LLC, Chinese company Zhongdong Dairy Farming and ANO IPA. This is a great achievement from the Russian and Chinese sides. But to launch large-scale projects, you need to work out the logistics. And today, the first milk machine went to the transition in the Primorsky Territory. An epoch-making event happened, I’m not afraid of the word, ”said Leonid Petukhov.

Alexander Konkov, Deputy Director General of ANO IPA, explained that a truck delivered five tons of whole milk produced in Primorye and processed at processing facilities in the Khabarovsk Territory to the Poltavka-Dunin border crossing. 

Previously, only ice cream was supplied to China. In 2018, Yuri Trutnev, as part of the work of the intergovernmental commission with the northern territories of the PRC, put forward an initiative to remove bilateral barriers. The order to study the possibility of exporting whole milk was given to the Rosselkhoznadzor on the one hand and the Chinese customs authority on the other with the participation of ANO IPA. As a result, a protocol was signed on sanitary and veterinary requirements for bilateral supplies of milk and dairy products.

It should be noted that within the framework of the Fifth Eastern Economic Forum, the signing of an eight-sided agreement on the construction of dairy farms in the territory of the Primorsky Territory is being prepared. According to him, livestock breeding complexes for the production of cow's milk with a total capacity of 500 thousand tons per year will be built in Primorye. The parties to the signing will be the administrations of Primorsky Krai, Heilongjiang Province and Mudanjiang City, the Far East Investment Promotion and Export Support Agency (ANO IPA), the Far East Development Corporation (FDCA JSC), Step X Milk LLC, and the Zhongding Dairy group of companies Farming Co., Ltd. ”and the Mengniu Dairy Group.
