22.04.2010 — News
Nestle is drafting a formal request to Ghennadiy Onishchenko, the Chief Environmental Health Officer of Russia. The Russian official made a statement that the company is prohibited to import baby food from Finland.
Mr Onishchenko's statement widely disseminated by mass media says that the prohibition has been determined by the slacking technological discipline when producing the goods. At the same time Marina Zibareva, a representative of Nestle Russia LLC, told RusBusinessNews that the company has no official documents confirming Mr Onishchenko's words. We went to representatives of RosPotrebNadzor (Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights) and so far have not received any notifications of any problems with our products", she stressed.
According to Ms Zibareva now virtually all the baby food branded Nestle sold in Russia is made in Europe, fruit and vegetable puree is made in Finland. Only one plant in Russia works in this segment of the market, it is the Nestle plant in Vologda that makes baby food cooked cereals.
