Bishkek, Feb. 16, 2018. / Kabar /. Kyrgyzstan resumed deliveries of meat to Iran, chairman of the association of domestic producers Bakyt Degenbaev told.
According to his data, processors from Kyrgyzstan supplied 56 tons out of 500 tons of the first contract. An agreement was reached to supply a mutton.
"In 2010, we already covered 30% of Iran's needs for lamb. But then we had a number of reasons, such as the lack of our own halal standard, modern slaughter shops, industrial refrigerators, which prevented us from supplying mutton to this country," Degenbaev explained.
The chairman of the association of domestic manufacturers explained that the break in the supply of meat was not in vain. During this time, the correct conclusions were made, we worked on the errors.
Entrepreneurs opened the necessary slaughter shops by modern standards, and the halal department of the Ministry of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic carried out all the work to create their own halal standard, in conjunction with the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Kyrgyzstan.
"Now we have received a green light for the supply of mutton to Iran. The specialists of the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Health, Sanitary and Veterinary Services of Iran arrived in Kyrgyzstan, who arrived in Kyrgyzstan to inspect the state of the infrastructure of our processing industry were satisfied. This is a step towards the long-term development of the markets of the countries of the Middle East," Degenbaev said.
