In the Astrakhan region, the third slaughter house is being prepared for certification. Its launch will open the possibility for local sheep farms of exporting lamb to Iran. For the time being, the primary processing unit remains a free market niche. The Islamic Republic is already buying lamb in the Astrakhan region, and demand is growing. The practice of certified enterprises shows that the importing country carefully checks the entire production chain. With the start of deliveries, the activities of each exporter are controlled by a veterinarian from Iran. To get access to export, you need to leave a request on the official website of the Rosselkhoznadzor. After 10 days, the territorial administration experts will conduct a production survey. Before taking this step, an enterprise should document, develop and implement a management and safety system based on the HACCP principle, confirming product safety.
