Russia: Retail Foods

Russian consumers continue to economize, but they are also looking for healthy, natural, innovative and trendy products at affordable prices. Although economic sanctions imposed in 2014 have spurred domestic production and have reduced dependency on imported food products, Russia’s growing food processing industry and retail market present attractive niche opportunities for American suppliers.
