Russia’s Customs Union Commission approved a tariff-rate quota of 350,000 metric tons for poultry for 2011, according to published reports. A Bureau of National Affairs report from Moscow was cited, in which there were no country-specific allocations.
TRQ reportedly includes frozen, deboned chicken meat, frozen bone-in chicken halves or quarters, frozen bone-in legs and parts thereof and frozen deboned turkey meat. Whole-carcass poultry was not included, as it has been previously -- a positive note for U.S. exports.
