Russia - This year pork imports may drop to nothing

Last year Russian pork production totaled to 2m tons, while the consumption was 2.75m tons. The shortage was offset by the imported meat. If the consumption is down 20%, the demand for pork will amount to 2.2m tons. Taking into consideration an 8% domestic production growth, it will be the volume Russian hog breeders will produce. Thus, we may refuse pork imports at all.
