Retailers Have 'Transitional Period' To Find Alternative Suppliers Before Turkish Products Prohibited Featured

02 December 2015

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich announced the government's decision to provide a transitional period for banned products from Turkey. The final list of restricted produce will be provided by Russia's Ministry of Industry and Trade, but it's already been announced that the measures will prohibit Turkish fruits and vegetables from entering the country.

The embargo is to come into effect in a few weeks to allow retailers to find alternative suppliers, the official said. “Talks are ongoing about two basic groups. The first group consists of vegetables, including tomatoes and other vegetables. And the second group is fruit."

According to previous reports, the government issued a less severe variant of the restrictions issued against Turkey due to concerns regarding the difficulties in the market situation ahead of the holidays. As Vedomosti reported, citing a senior official as the source, authorities stopped short of an embargo and instead opted for partial restrictions.

As much as 20 percent of all vegetables imported into Russia are from Turkey, Interfax reported.
