With a population of more than 146 million people, Russia is the largest country in the world and is a market that grows at an average rate of 6% per year.
Expenses on food products represent about 22.7% of a middle-class family’s budget. And if we take into account all Russian consumers, the budget allocated to food products amounts to $27 billion per year. The demand for food products and other consumer-packaged goods is therefore definitely existent and is increasing at a significant rate on a yearly basis.
Consequently, Russia offers very appealing business opportunities to exporters of food produce as well as other consumer-packaged goods.
It is mandatory that exporters get all their goods certified for the purposes of customs clearance at the Russian border, and for further sales in Russia.
