Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Fyodorov N. V.

Dear readers!

On behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, I am glad to greet you from pages of the 20th anniversary issue of the "Who is Who in the Meat Market of Russia" magazine.

The meat branch is one of the most discussed, especially after Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization. In it there is a number of significant pluses, such as increase of requirements and the quality standards, first of all, to domestic, as well as to the meat production imported from abroad. The quantity and, the main thing, quality of domestic meat raw materials constantly increases. As a result, Russia becomes the sure exporter of fowl, and it pleases. One of strategic objectives – full ensuring internal needs of the Russian Federation with the KRS domestic meat. Purpose difficult, but feasible. Food independence of the country is one of the most important factors of economic stability.

In return, I wish to participants of the meat market of stability, growth and prosperity. Separate thanks to the "Who is Who in the Meat Market of Russia" magazine for providing objective information on a situation in meat sector.

I congratulate staff of magazine on the 10 anniversary and I wish further fruitful work!
