Ekosem-Agrar: Stefan Dürr has been elected as
Chairman of the Russian National Association of Milk
Russian Minister of Agriculture Dimitriy Patrushev was also present at the congress, which traditionally took place as part of the AgroFarm trade fair in Moscow on 6 February 2019, and commented on the election of the new chairman: "I am convinced that Stefan Dürr will continue the initiatives commenced by Andrey Danilenko with undoubted success. Dairy product manufacturing is crucial for achieving the goals set by the President of the Russian Federation in relation to the development of the agricultural sector and attaining a 2.5-times increase in agricultural exports by 2024. Potentially, milk export can reach from 800 million to one billion dollars by 2025."
The Minister stressed that public financial aid was only one building block for the development of the dairy industry in Russia. The demand for dairy products also had to be increased. As a remedy, Dimitriy Patrushev stated an improvement in product quality and a decisive fight against plagiarism in the dairy industry.
Stefan Dürr thanked the Minister of Agriculture on
behalf of the present members of the Association for
his commitment and emphasized: "I am looking forward
to the special task as chairman of the Soyuzmoloko.
The goal is to strengthen and further professionalize
the team of the Association in order to implement the
manifold tasks quickly and efficiently".
