The pig meat exported by the EU to Russia in 2013 that is now banned represents € 969M (the most affected members are DE: €239.7M; DK: €199.4M, and PL: €99.1M). In 2013 the EU exported 747,233 Tm of pig products to Russia (24.1 % of its production) and in 2014 it has been reduced to 53,983 Tm, (4.0% of its production) (from January to June). This represents a decrease by 85%.

EU pork exports

With the current ban, the global picture of the countries that export pork to Russia will change dramatically. Some of the main pork producing countries that now have exclusive access to the Russian market are Brazil and Chile. In 2013 Brazil's exports to Russia represented 26 % of all the Brazilian exports, and Chile's exports to Russia were 14 % of all of Chile's exports.
