Decrease Chinese fruit export to Russia

Russian fruit prices have increased between 30% and 50% over the past year. Main reasons are a weak Ruble and the EU import ban with the country. Oranges witnessed the biggest price increase with 58%, followed by bananas, apples and pears. Russia imports 90% of its fruit. Local supply is only available for three months during the year. 

Export from China to Russia has considerably decreased over the summer.

Due to inflation of the Chinese Yuan and start of the Russian season for a number of fruit and vegetables, export through Sui Fen He, a boarder town between Russia and China, has considerably decreased. Sui Fen He is one of the largest export hubs for fresh products between China and Russia.

In July 2015, 11,026 tons fresh products with an estimated value of $90,567,800 passed Sui Fen He. This is almost 30% less than the year before.
