Online-event: Finnish organic and ecological food products to Russian market


Date: 24.11.2021, 10:00-11:30 (Helsinki time)

The rapidly growing demand for organic, functional and ecological food in Russia provides interesting business opportunities for Finnish food and beverage companies. Russia’s organic food market has grown by over 60% over the past five years. Roughly, 3% of Russia’s population regularly choose healthier, organically sourced options. This equates to four and a half million health-conscious Russians on the look for organic products – and this demand is only set to rise.

It is still early days for domestic production in Russia, so imports from other countries play a vital role in this development – there are worms to catch for early birds.

The experts of the event will talk about the possibilities, challenges and the ways to success in Russian market for Finnish producers of organic and ecological food products.
