The First Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Russia Dzhambulat Khatuov believes that the mass media (media) exaggerate the share of counterfeit in dairy products in Russia and, in fact, the share of counterfeit dairy products is insignificant.
“Rosselkhoznadzor and Rospotrebnadzor are doing a lot of work together with regional authorities to identify counterfeit products that continue to be on the dairy market. But this share is insignificant and not the one that the media reported lately at the suggestion of the Rosselkhoznadzor, "Khatuov said.
The Ministry of Agriculture has adopted a set of measures that will reduce counterfeiting in the dairy market to a minimum, Khatuov emphasized. “In fact, we are in a moderate state, and now a set of measures will allow us to minimize counterfeiting in the dairy market,” he said.
At the end of June, the Rosselkhoznadzor published a message on its website in which it spoke about the methods of milk falsification in Russia. According to the ministry, starch, chalk, soap, soda, lime, boric or salicylic acid and even gypsum can be added to milk for falsification or souring. The allegations sparked outrage among milk producers. Later, the Rosselkhoznadzor explained that the publication was made on the basis of materials from publicly available literature.
