Russia Ban 13 Norwegian Fresh Salmon Exporters, E24.no Reports

Russia on Saturday banned fresh salmon imports from 13 Norwegian producers as the Russian food inspection made “reoccurring findings of produce not consistent with the authority’s standard”, business site E24.no reported, citing the Norwegian news agency NTB.

Norwegian authorities received prior warning of the import ban less than a week ago, E24.no said, citing NTB, while the ban did not affect exports of frozen salmon.
