Armenia Has 2-3 Months of Food Reserves, Says Food Safety Inspectorate Head

Georgi Avetisyan, who heads Armenia’s Food Safety Inspectorate, said there is no need for panic food buying even though Armenia imports large amounts of foodstuffs from Russia and Ukraine.

Avetisyan, at a press conference today in Yerevan, said Armenia has two-three months of adequate food reserves to ride out any shortages caused by the war in Ukraine.

Russia has imposed a ban on the export of grain crops until the end of August this year. Armenia imports 99% of its wheat from Russia and 34% of its poultry from Ukraine.

Avetisyan urged people not to buy food in bulk, only to dispose of it when it goes bad.

All Avetisyan said was that negotiations are underway to obtain alternate supplies of food. He provided no specifics.
