Russia Looks Away From American Chicken…

I have written several articles about the chicken issues between Russia and America. (Link) (Link) This is a serious issue that many of you do not realize is happening. The American chicken industry can not afford to loose the Russian business and truthfully Russia does not need American chicken.

There is several countries lined up to supply chicken to Russia and they have no issues with meeting the requirements that America refuses to yield to…

Of the 600,000 tons of chicken that Russia buys from America during the year, 150,000 tons just became Italy’s and Turkey’s new sales.

So what is the problem? American chicken meat is washed with a 20-50 mg/L chlorine solution. Russian health officials declared chlorine bath to be unsafe and banned the procedure, demanding that U.S. farmers adopt new technology by January 1, 2010 or lose the Russian market. The American market was also injecting over 4% water into the chicken meat to make it plumper…

The local Russian farmers are coming out with no-barred production. In fact this is the opportunity that they have waited for and are showing what they are made of. The Russian farmers have been given an opportunity to show that they can keep the supply up and the price down. So far they have met the challenge and we are seeing a price drop in chicken as I write this…

Can they keep it up? That is what the Kremlin is wondering and so hence we have a continuation of talks with Russia and America. We also have the Russian government setting up to buy chicken on a long term bases from Italy and Turkey. This is when the men are separated from the boys, so to say!

I am here to tell America that Russian Chicken Farmers want that 600,000 tons of chicken to stay home and looks like they are going to give it all they got to keep America from selling chicken to Russia, ever again…

Windows to Russia!
