L&K Packing International, a Schleswig, Iowa-based cutting/packaging plant and cold storage facilities owned by Chicago-based Ashland Cold Storage and Richland, Miss.-based Millard Refrigerated Services are now authorised to export pork to Russia.

In addition, poultry originating from Ashland Cold Storage and House of Raeford-Wallace Division in Teachey, N.C., can be exported to Russia.
