Yamal is increasing exports of traditional branches. Reindeer skins prepared by the enterprise “Vozrozhdeniye” in Nadymskiy district will go to Finland. This year it is planned to deliver 13 thousand reindeer skins there. The information was given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” by the deputy director of the department of agro-industrial complex of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Alexander Zemskikh.
He notes that the enterprise signed the agreement with the company “Sibirskiy Olen” (Siberian Reindeer) from St. Petersburg, which specializes in assistance to domestic reindeer-herding enterprises in delivery of their products to the EU countries.
The purchaser took 2021 skins. “Vozrozhdeniye” prepared the materials in winter. The skins were conserved in order to preserve and disinfect the raw materials.
“Our partners know us as reliable suppliers, the products are highly appreciated. On the territory of the Russian Federation the demand for products is low, there are issues on processing of these products, and the Finnish market is in demand and ready to accept qualitative products for processing. However, the department of agro-industrial complex is considering variants for processing on the territory of the Russian Federation – this is the prospect of more prolonged nature. The task is to maintain the balance between internal and external consumers”, explained Alexander Zemskikh.
As it should be noted, the young enterprise of Nadymskiy district has been working since 2016. It fulfills storing and deep processing of meat of domesticated reindeer. Sale of reindeer skins is a new direction in activity of the organization. The enterprise was certified for export at the end of last year.
Yamal participates in fulfillment of the federal project “Export of agricultural products” within the national project “International cooperation and export”. In the future, by 2024, it is planned to increase the amount of exports in monetary terms up to 6 million dollars. Export of reindeer skins is a new direction not only for “Vozrozhdeniye”, but also for the region in general. The first consignment in the amount of 5 thousand reindeer skins was sent to Finland by the meat-processing complex “Payuta” last year.
This year, in addition to “Vozrozhdeniye”, the municipal enterprise “Yamalskiye Oleni” (Yamal Reindeer) joined export of reindeer skins. Since 2008 it has delivered reindeer meat to Europe.
