On March 1, 2017, Russia notified the World Trade Organization (WTO). According to the notifications, the amendments specify definition and labeling requirements for milk products with and without addition of substitute of milk fat.
The draft describes new rules and standards for labeling such products, including branding, descriptions, and label placement. For example, the draft bans using of the dairy terms in the names of products containing any milk fat substitute. As an example, the draft regulations require the label to describe such a product as ‘milk product with milk fat substitute produced according to ice-cream technology’.
