Russia. Dairy industry has all the chances to get a niche in the foreign market


According to Chairman of Board of Soyuzmoloko Andrey Danilenko, today the dairy industry has all the chances to get a niche in the foreign market. This was said by the expert during the forum at the exhibition "Agroprodmash", writes The DairyNews.

According to Danilenko, the Russian products (including dairy) is popular with residents of the PRC - in the border areas very often you can see the Chinese buying something in the Russian shops.

- Yes, there are some problems; there is still a ban on supplies. Those who are struggling with imports should open the export. In addition, we must have a positive image in terms of the product at least within the country. Is it very difficult to sell the product to other countries without a positive internal image? - wondered the Chairman of the Board of Soyuzmoloko.

It’s worth reminding, according to estimates of the Ministry of agriculture, the target dynamics of exports of dairy products implies an increase in exports outside the Russian Federation to 1.8 million tons (in terms of raw milk) by 2024. According to data of 2017, exports amounted to 700 thousand tons. From 2017 to 2024, the exports of dairy products will grow by 15%. At the same time, the value of exports of the dairy category will grow at a slower pace and will amount to about 0.8 billion dollars by 2024, predict analysts of the Federal Agricultural Department.
