The Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Rostov Region, Konstantin Rachalovsky, listed several local products that might be of interest to guests of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, during a news conference at the Rostov City Press Center.
"Visitors are certain to be interested in Don wine, which is one of our specialties, as well as our fishing industry products, because we are equally good at cultivating, catching, and at cooking them," the minister said.
Rachalovsky also urged football fans and tourists to look out for products with the Made on Don label.
"Companies go through serious tests before they are entitled to stick that label on their products, and they receive a certificate only after evaluation by a special commission," he added.
According to Rachalovsky, on buying goods that have passed voluntary certification, customers can be sure that they have acquired healthy and high- quality products.
