Blumar receives remote Russian inspection. Blumar has become the first salmon producer in Chile to receive Russian authorities for remote inspection.

He also added that:
“I am sure that many of these remote processes will continue in the future, even after the pandemic has ended. But the final decision, despite official inspections of the plants, will be made by each country.”
