Russia eases ban on some New Zealand dairy imports

Russia has lifted a ban on some New Zealand dairy imports, loosening restrictions imposed in 2013 as the country experiences a dairy shortage due to its ongoing ban on milk products from European countries.

New Zealand’s agriculture ministry said Russia has removed a ban on some dairy products, banned after New Zealand dairy exporter Fonterra mistakenly detected a botulism-causing toxin in one product two years ago.
