Two-year Sprat War is Over

New regulations on the allowable level of benzopyrene in tinned sprats are to come into force in Russia on 1 September, 2008. Russian authorities have raised the permissible amount of carcinogen benzopyrene in tins from 1 mg to 5 mg the EU fixed norm.
      Two years ago Latvian sprats were banned from sale in Russia and now will have to make up leeway to regain its market share of 50%, as it used to be before the anti-Latvia campaign led by Russian supermarkets.
      Sprat ban reduced Latvian tinned fish export by a quarter, making local fish enterprises cut jobs and production volume.
