The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation after the start of mandatory labeling of ice cream and cheeses on June 1 received some reports about a number of difficulties with labeling, such cases are promptly considered and resolved, said State Secretary, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Yevtukhov in an interview with RIA Novosti during SPIEF-2021.

‘Since the beginning of mandatory labeling, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has received information about individual cases of difficulties when manufacturers apply labeling codes. Such cases are promptly considered and resolved with the participation of representatives of the CATD (Center for the Advanced Technology Development, operator of the information labeling system - ed.),’ Yevtukhov said.

Mandatory labeling of ice cream and cheese began in Russia on June 1, with similar requirements for dairy products with a shelf life of more than 40 days coming into force on September 1, and for products with a shelf life of up to 40 days inclusive on December 1. At the same time, dairy products produced before these dates can be sold without labeling until the expiration date. The Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade noted: some manufacturers indicated that individual representatives of the retail sector do not accept products without applied identification means, which were produced before June 1, 2021.

‘Taking this opportunity, I want to remind market participants that such products are not subject to labeling and can be in circulation until the expiration date. But we are conducting explanatory work with such companies and the industry community regarding the illegality of such requirements,’ the Deputy Minister said.
