Export of Russian Food Products to Asia and Africa is Growing Rapidly

In 2023, Russia will further increase food exports to many of the world’s neediest countries, from Asia to the African continent and Latin America.

According to data collected by the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, “virtually all major Russian producers of meat, sausages, and canned meat plan to increase their foreign sales by 10-20% in 2023.”

Year after year, Russian producers increase the export of agri-food products to the republics of Central Asia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and African countries. In 2023, the geography of trade was expanded to include China, Mongolia, Angola, Morocco, South Africa, South Korea, and Mexico.

The agro-industrial complex of Russia summed up the results of the just ended 2022-2023 agricultural year (01.07.2022 – 01.07.2023).

According to the Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev, “the country has won the title of the world’s largest grain exporter, having sold 60 million tons of grain on world markets, of which wheat exports amounted to 47 million tons.” According to the minister, in the 2023-2024 agricultural year, Russia will export at least 55 million tons of grain.
