21 tonnes of blue cheese produced in Armenia at Spayka's newly built cheese factory 24 days after being forced to stop at the Upper Lars checkpoint in Russia. Upper Lars customs checkpoint banned the entry of Armenian cheese into Russia.

On 05.11.2019, the employees of the Russian Upper Lars customs checkpoint verbally informed the truck driver of the company that they could not drop the cheese into the Russian territory and would send the cargo back to Armenia after receiving the results of the examination, according to which the country of origin of the cheese was noted: "Armenia "East Asia, Southeast Europe".


Since the first day the company has sent letters, notifications, additional information, documents, videotapes to the authorities of the Upper Lars checkpoint of the Russian Federation and the North Ossetian Customs Service about media reports on the opening of the cheese factory in Armenia to confirm that the cheese was produced in Armenia.

The Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Armenia has been informed about the problem from the very first day, which is working to provide a systematic solution to the problem. A letter has also been sent to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEU).

As a result of arbitrary, unlawful actions like the Russian Upper Lars customs checkpoint, the company suffers great damage: the forced-out cheese has lost its usefulness 24 days, and the company has been subject to penalties and penalties for failing to supply the cheese.

To date, we have not been provided with the conclusion of the laboratory examination carried out by the Russian Upper Lars customs checkpoint. It is not clear to the company how the cheese produced in Armenia was considered a product of another country by the Russian Upper Lars customs officers.


The company will continue to fight to protect its interests and rights against the illegal and illogical actions of the Russian Upper Lars customs checkpoint, as well as to repair the damage it has caused.

The company invites all those who are concerned about this issue to visit the company's cheese factory and see the cheese production process.

 PS The Armenian representative of the Russian Customs Service also visited the cheese factory of the Company and got acquainted with the whole production process.
