Polish fruit growers want an end to Russian fruit embargo

Last Friday, the Association of Polish Fruit Growers asked the Agricultural Ministry to engage Russia in dialogue on the possibility of ending restrictions on Polish fruit imports. The Ministry has held a routine meeting on how to stabilize the local fruit market. The Association was represented by Witold Piekarniak.

He asked to try to engage Russia on the issue of canceling the embargo, as the growers have problems finding other markets for their enormous supply.

Russia banned imports of fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, fish and nuts from the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia and Norway in response to sanctions imposed on it in the wake of the 2014 Ukraine crisis. The embargo is estimated to cost them an annual $8.3 billion in lost profits.
