In Yamal implementation of the annual plan on export of agricultural products reached almost 60%. This activity is being fulfilled on the regional project “Export of products of agro-industrial complex” within the national project “International cooperation and export”.
This year Yamal delivered about 270 tonnes of reindeer meat to Finland and Germany. Also 15 tonnes of non-food reindeer byproducts of the 3rd category — the so-called slaughterhouse offal -were delivered to Germany. According to the press service of the governor of Yamal, this is a raw material in demand on the market being used in production of feedstuff for pets.
This year deliveries of venison to foreign countries should made about 400 tonnes, and it is also planned to sell 13 thousand reindeer hides to Europe.
Today three certified enterprises export products of reindeer husbandry: “Yamalskiye Oleni” (“Yamal reindeer”), the meat-processing complex “Payuta” and “Vozrozhdenie” (“revival, renewal”).
“As for export of products of reindeer husbandry, the increase in amounts of deliveries will be mainly due to non-food commodity items – reindeer hides and slaughterhouse offal. The amounts of export of reindeer meat will be not increased — in favor of the regional market”, said Alexander Zemskikh, the deputy director of the department of agro-industrial complex of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
