“The Russian market in 2020 showed a stable trend of increasing purchases of imported cherries and sweet cherries, while record indicators of both volumes of imports and their value was another stable tendency”, – ROIF Expert analysts said.

According to FruitNews, based on RBC’s materials, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Moldova became the main exporting countries of cherries and sweet cherries to Russia in 2020. The highest price for these stone fruit crops is in Armenia, Macedonia and Turkey, and the lowest is in Kazakhstan, Belarus and Moldova.

According to EastFruit analysts, fruit imports to Russia in 2020 were the highest in the last six years. Although the growth was relatively insignificant – only 2% compared to 2019, it is very indicative against the background of the coronavirus pandemic, the complication of supplies, the rise in logistics costs and a sharp decline in the income level of the population of the Russian Federation.
