Delegation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland has visited Karelia

The Minister of Agriculture, Fish Industry and Food of the RK Vladimir Sobinsky has met with the Director General of the Center of Inspections of Vegetative Production of Finland Maria Teirikko in Petrozavodsk today. She has arrived with the delegation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland which also includes experts of the Center and the head of the Grain inspection of Finland Mirja Kartio.

The Center of Inspections of Vegetative Production is the agency working at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland responsible for state strategy maintenance of quality of foodstuff. It supervises quality of production from the manufacturer to the consumer - as Finns say, «from field to fork». It has well equipped laboratories and competent experts, and thus, Finnish consumers never doubt the quality of food they eat.

- We are very interested in learning the experience of organization of fytosanitory control system which operates in Finland, - the Minister Sobinsky speaks, - as care of plants and quality of manufacture of food means care of people's health. We have lots problems common both for us, and the neighbouring country's experts. In fact, plants and wild animals know no borders, just as pests and illnesses. Therefore, we actively offer our Finnish colleagues information exchange and cooperation to protect population of our countries from troubles caused by food production. It seems to me, we have managed to achieve complete mutual understanding, which as I hope, will result in new joint projects.
