Russia's pork, poultry demand grows

03/19/2013 @ 8:14am

Russia's poultry and pork imports increased by 85.2% and by 1.1%, respectively, in January from a year earlier, in response to growing domestic demand, data released by the federal customs service showed Tuesday.

The service said Russia's poultry imports in January this year totaled 25,200 metric tons, 85.2% more than in January 2012. Pork imports, by contrast, increased by 1.1% yera-on-year in January to 27,400 tons. All poultry and pork imports were from countries outside the Commonwealth of Independent States.
