Georgia overtakes Serbia in blueberry supplies to Russia

In 2021, the volume of blueberry imports to Russia exceeded 10,000 tons for the first time, reaching 10,700 tons in total. As in 2020, Georgia increased blueberry exports to Russia faster than other supplying countries, becoming one of the top-5 largest suppliers of fresh blueberries to the Russian market in 2021 for the first time.

Blueberry exports from Georgia to Russia increased by 37% or 230 tons over the year and reached 850 tons in 2021. Thus, the share of Georgia in the Russian blueberry market reached 8%.

Industry experts believe that Georgia could have exported more blueberries in 2021, if not for the unexpected end of the season when Russia introduced new rules for the import of plant products. However, Georgia exported more blueberries to Russia in 2021 than Serbia, with which Georgia switched places in the ranking of the largest blueberry exporters to Russia. Serbia reduced exports by 39% at the end of the season.
