Russian agriculture and food industry is currently undergoing a period of increased pressure and new challenges. A vigorous import-substitution trend along with government subsidies open numerous new opportunities for businesses. New opportunities, in their own turn, are associated with new risks.
Agriculture is the key element of the agro-industrial complex of Russia. It is one of the few branches of the real sector of economy, which show sustainable growth even during economic crisis. It is exactly those crisis phenomena accompanied by RUR depreciation that contribute to the growth of agricultural production volume. This, in the first place, is due to the fact that depreciation of national currency entails growth in the cost of imported products and boosts import-substitution trend. An additional driver for agricultural development was provided by the introduction of retaliatory sanctions, i.e. ban on import to Russia of certain food products.
Companies active in the food industry have many new opportunities too, which are often associated with new risks. Legislative and macroeconomic changes compel businesses to promptly react to new market conditions, while changing consumer demands often require restructuring of business strategies.
