Georgia’s Borjomi Water Starts Talks on Resuming Russian Exports

Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The maker of Georgian mineral water Borjomi, which has been banned from Russia since 2006, plans to resume sales in the country next year, IDS Borjomi International said today.

The company, based in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, held talks Dec. 14 over possible exports with Russia’s consumer watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, according to a statement on its website today.

Russia prohibited imports of Georgian mineral water and wine in 2006 after Georgia expelled four Russian servicemen who it accused of espionage. Georgia last month backed Russia’s bid to join the World Trade Organization, clearing the way for membership in 2012.
