Long queues at supermarkets and food shops. Half-empty shelves. Only a few products in refrigerators. When re-stocked, the items in much demand at our supermarkets are regularly seen to be the now infamous toilet paper, followed by essential foods such as meat, milk, eggs, bread, canned goods and pasta.Such scenes have been witnessed in several shops across Europe, and indeed the world. And many EU citizens born after the mid-1950s are not used to such experiences. But luckily - thanks to the many Food Heroes working against the clock throughout the entire food supply chain - food security should be the least of our worries in Europe in the face of this COVID-19 pandemic.
ANAFRIC Communication.- The Russian health authorities have activated the alarms in front of the PPA focus detected in the northeast of China and very close to the border between both countries.
In this area of eastern Russia, pig production is in a phase of continued progress in recent years, where companies like RusAgro are building large farms.
With the activation of sanitary measures to try to prevent entry, the Russian authorities fear that they are not effective, as the real danger lies in the illegal trafficking of animals on the Russian-Chinese border and the possibility that Animals affected by the PPA from China to Russia enter.
