According to the department, experts in the certification of organic products of Roskachestvo will soon conduct on-site inspections of Ugra commodity producers in the Megion, Pokachi, Surgut and Nefteyugansk regions. If they successfully pass the audit, the five businesses will receive certified organic producer status, verifying that their products meet high quality and safety standards.

Saranpaul Reindeer Herding Company was founded in 1961 by the merger of several small farms. The number of deer is over 18 thousand. The enterprise employs 53 specialists from the indigenous local population who have practical experience and knowledge of the specifics of work in the field of reindeer husbandry. The venison produced by the company does not contain hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or other harmful substances, as the animals receive only natural feed and are in suitable living conditions.

There are two reindeer herding companies in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug – Saranpaul and Kazym, where a total of about 22 thousand animals are kept. A total of 97 private areas belonging to 171 households are allocated for reindeer husbandry in the region. Last year, the amount of funds allocated to activities to support reindeer breeding in the Ugra reached almost 100 million rubles; This is three times more than the previous year.
