Russia has allowed 39 seafood and meat exporters from Vietnam this month, softening its regulations on imported commodities.
In a report released by Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade, the nine meat companies Haiphong Vinalivesko Meat Processing Co, Nam Dinh Meat and Agriculture Products processing Com, Ninh Binh Meat and Agriculture Products Processing Co, Vissan Import - Export Co, Tien Giang - Libereko Export Frozen Meat Processing Plant, Thai Binh Meat Export Processing Co, Thai Binh Meat Co, Minh Hien Meat Union and Hanoi LIPROCO Meat Processing Co.
Other 30 seafood companies include BASEAFOOD - F34, Hung Vuong Vinh Long Co. Ltd, AN LAC SEAFOOD Co.Ltd (ALSF Co., LTD), Cho Lon Seafood Processing Co. (Cholifood ) and Sai Gon Seafood JSC.
Russia lifted the ban on food and seafood imports from Vietnam in April which it had imposed last December after some products were found containing banned chemicals.
Vietnam exported US$200 million worth of seafood products to Russia last year.
