Georgia-based bottled water producer Borjomi may now be allowed to sell its products in Russia again, five years after a ban was imposed by the country's health department, according to reports.

Russia's chief public health official, Gennady Onishchenko, told Russia & CIS Business and Financial Newswire yesterday (5 May) that it will admit Borjomi's products to the country if the quality and safety of the product can be ensured. Government health officials in the country suspended sales of the firm's products in early 2006, due to the "inferior quality" of the products.

Onishchenko also banned imports of Nabeglavi and other Georgian mineral waters for not complying with Russian regulations.

Authorities in Russia had claimed that Borjomi contained excessive amounts of fluorine and the chemical composition indicated on the labels of some of the brand's bottles differed from its actual composition.
