The volume of imports of non-seasonal greens and vegetables to Russia in 2012 amounted to 1.4 million tons

This figure of 1.4 million tons of fresh vegetables and herbs imported to our country over the past year was given by analysts of «Growth Technology» in their study «The current state and prospective of greenhouse vegetables and herbs market in the Central Federal District».

The reason for such a high number of deliveries, according to the experts, is quite obvious — the Russians are becoming more concerned about their own nutrition and health, and local greenhouses can not fully support the year-round consumption in the country. This trend will survive into the near future, as the consumer demand for the off-season tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and herbs is growing every year.
