"Trading networks, as owners of goods, will not be able to pass on to manufacturer their risks and costs, compelling the manufacturer to buy back unsold product or exchange it without charge. Protecting producers from undue losses efficiently creates favorable conditions for expanding production and product range, improving product quality, which is undoubtedly beneficial to the buyer and positively for expanding the domestic food market", - said Vice-speaker of the state Duma.
"A draft law guaranteeing fairness and equality of the parties in the contract between manufacturers and trading networks, as the subjects of different economic forces is the protection of small and medium-sized businesses, as it eliminates the factor of unfair competition," said Irina Yarovaya.
