Russian producers are targeting a new market for the export of dairy products

Algeria’s accreditation of the Novosibirsk plant “opens the gates to Africa”, the region’s agriculture minister said.

A dairy in Novosibirsk, Russia’s third largest city, has been accredited to export its products to Algeria, regional agriculture minister Yevgeny Leshchenko announced on Wednesday.

Chanovsky Butter Factory, which is already accredited to ship to Kazakhstan, will now be able to deliver goods to Algeria, a development that Leshchenko says “It opens the doors to Africa.”

“A fundamentally new direction is Africa, a fundamentally new position is animal production products…especially dried dairy products,” said the minister.

He pointed out that entering the African market would significantly increase milk processing volumes in currently idle facilities.

Leshchenko emphasized that the region can export four products: skimmed milk powder, whole milk powder and two types of butter.

In 2023, the county exported approximately 830 tons of raw milk every day, he said.

Novosibirsk Region exported 1,890,000 tons of agricultural products to 56 countries in 2023, a 33% increase from 2022. The largest importers of products from the region include Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Turkey, and Kyrgyzstan.

In addition to strengthening trade ties, Russia also donated 200,000 tons of food aid to six African countries. Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Mali, Somalia, Central African Republic and Eritrea received up to 50,000 tonnes of grain from Russia.

During a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mali’s interim president Assimi Goita expressed his gratitude for the wheat and fertilizers sent by Moscow, the Kremlin press service said on Wednesday.
