The object of attention
The importance of systematic work, which is aimed at creating the necessary conditions for the effective development of the dairy industry, said Deputy Chairman of Moscow region government, Minister of investment and innovation Denis Burtsev.
“In the suburbs dairy production is a priority. Comfortable environment to start a business must have three characteristics: land, availability of financial resources and subsidies, and area sales. Currently on the territory of Moscow region in agriculture introduced about 200 000 hectares of land. We are working rather intensively, not only with Rossella, but with private owners. Most of them come to the need for this land either by itself to treat, including to create dairy farms, or rent those who know how to do it, — he stressed.
What about milk? The government of the Moscow region is struggling with forgery

To invest in the market that is competitive, and if there will be order, it would grab the public funds and means of investors” — said the assistant head of the Federal service for veterinary and phytosanitary surveillance Sergey Dankvert.
Roskoshestvo regularly conducts independent studies of different product groups.

We took the most popular brand, and that more than 70% of the market. We found eight cases lowering the level of fat is either a technological error or savings, and six cases of butter was not, and contained substantially vegetable fat,” — said Maxim Protasov. All the results are always published, which allows for stable preferences for higher quality products.
