MINSK, 12 November (BelTA) – In January-September 2019, Belarus' export of agricultural and food products to France totaled $3.145 million, which was up by 29.9% year-on-year, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry.

Belarus Agriculture and Food Minister Anatoly Khotko met with Ambassador of France to Belarus Didier Canesse. The parties discussed expanding bilateral trade and economic cooperation in agriculture and food, in particular, in cattle breeding (sheep breeding), horticulture, and sanitary and veterinary control.

Belarus' major exports to France include fresh, frozen, and canned vegetables, press cake, and shellfish.

The European Union is not an easy market to access due to strict food safety requirements, import customs duties, and strong competition between EU companies and suppliers from third countries. So far, the EU has granted market access to such Belarusian dairy companies as Santa Bremor, Verkhnedvinsk Cheese and Butter Making Plant, Bereza Cheese-Making Plant, Slutsk Cheese-Making Plant, Savushkin Product and its production facilities in Stolin and Pinsk, Morozproduct, and Molochny Mir. Some enterprises are also allowed to supply other types of products to the EU.
