Russia lifts ban on Bulgarian vegetable imports

Russia will lift its ban on imports of vegetables from Bulgaria on Friday, the country's consumer protection agency said on Thursday.

Russia banned imports of raw vegetables from the European Union on June 2 due to a deadly E.coli outbreak. Moscow later agreed to drop the ban provided it received safety guarantees and has allowed imports from individual EU nations.

Russia's consumer protection agency said imports from Bulgaria would be allowed from July 29.

Russia has already allowed Poland, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Greece, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Italy and Hungary to resume vegetable exports to Russia based on safety certificates.
