Lukanin also noted that given this current "trend", there is still a steady flow of contraband from Europe entering the Russian market through Belarus. But now, the “retail chains are at least paying attention to domestic producers”.
He estimated that it would take Russia about 5-7 year to reach import substitution.
Trudovoy, along the same lines, is planning to increase its production volume, in response to the current trend, its own favorable market position and the attention the company receives from the country's authorities. Increased subsidies for every hectare of newly sown ground can receive up to 230 thousand rubles. Previous support amounted to 128 thousand rubles per hectare, the amount for which dropped to 68 thousand rubles after Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization.
