Udmurt milk in special containers will arrive at the port of New York by sea, via St. Petersburg and Rotterdam.
‘The history of deliveries to the United States began with the fact that in July we received a message on Facebook from a resident of the city of Punta Gorda, in Florida, she once emigrated to the United States from Izhevsk,’ says Andrey Shutov, managing shareholder of the KOMOS GROUP agricultural holding. - A woman wrote with delight that her friends found milk " Selo Zelenoe " from a manufacturer from Udmurtia in one of the stores in Chicago. Of course, they wondered if it was a fake. It was really our milk. The delivery was a test. We decided, since our milk is waited for across the ocean and it is so welcome, we need to act! In a short time, our production site "Sarapul-moloko" submitted documents to Rospotrebnadzor for inclusion in the register of enterprises exporting dairy products to the United States, and for the first time we officially ship the first batch of our milk under the brand "Selo Zelenoe" to the United States of America.’
"Sarapul-moloko" was previously accredited for compliance with the basic requirements of the host country in the automated information system "Cerberus" of the Rosselkhoznadzor of Russia and is now included in the register of importing countries to the United States.
