Georgia has refused entry to 21.5 tons of Belarusian potatoes, citing quality concerns identified by the sanitary service, as reported by "Sputnik Georgia."

The shipment, originating from Azerbaijan, was found to contain harmful organisms, prompting its return to the exporting country.

Belarus exports potatoes to various countries, including Russia, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Serbia, Moldova, Montenegro, and others. Despite this setback, Belarus aims to export approximately one-third of its potato harvest this season.

The incident underscores the importance of adhering to quality standards in international agricultural trade.
