The growing shortage of amino acids and vitamins can lead to the shutdown of feed mills and problems with meat production. The head of the National Meat Association Sergei Yushin warned the First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov about this in his letter, transfers Kommersant. As the newspaper notes, market participants fear that the situation will continue until the second half of 2022.
The National Meat Association warned that the situation threatens to temporarily stop a number of feed mills and reduce the quality of feed, which will lead to an increase in the cost of the meat industry. The Ministry of Agriculture confirmed the existence of the problem. Now the department is working on mechanisms to stabilize the situation at the Rosselkhoznadzor site.
Executive Director of the National Feed Union Sergei Mikhnyuk believes that in order to solve the problem in the long term, it is necessary to localize the production of most feed additives in Russia. However, the problem can be solved quickly only by expanding the list of foreign suppliers, which will reduce prices on the domestic market, the head of the National Meat Association Sergei Yushin is sure.
The Rosselkhoznadzor told Kommersant that they are working on expanding imports.
