We have built for ourselves the image of a reliable partner when in 2012 Food Standard Australia New Zealand officially recognised Lithuania as the lowest risk country as regards bovine spongiform encephalopathy and opened its market to beef from Lithuania,” said Dr Jonas Milius, director of the VMVT.
