Domestic Production In Southern Russia Helps Reduce Need For Food Imports Featured

16 February 2016

During the roundtable discussions of the "PRODEXPO", one of the largest annual and specialized exhibitions in Russia and Eastern Europe, a representative of  Russia's Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service (Rosselkhoznadzor) Alexei Alexeyenko along with retail networks that previously have not supplied products to Russia said that there ar possibilities and perspectives after large suppliers, once located in Russia, have left the market. According to the representative, all these changes have created significant adjustments to the geography of import purchases.

“Turkish products will be replaced in part due to the growth in production in southern Russia," Alexeyenko said. "And there are increases in supplies from other countries. For example, Iran. Work has been taking shape for several years, but now there are results. This year, Iran will start to supply various products to the Russian market for the first time."

Other than food, the representative of the phytosanitary agency said that imports of foreign equipment are a prospect for the market as Russian processors need these items in addition to seeds. The representative asked that suppliers of seeds and seed products inquire directly to the department for the necessary consultations regarding export requirements.

According to the exhibition's official website, PRODEXPO has been influential in the development of domestic food industry for over 20 years by helping to implement high-priority federal projects aimed at improving the quality of life of the Russian citizens.
