The Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation has stated that the export of meat and meat products has so far not impacted food prices in the eastern european country.
The Russian Ministry is keen to ensure that pork prices will not increase this year due to their large domestic supply source.
As a means of meeting the great local demand for meat, Vietnam has been importing other types of meat along with pork.
Back in 2019, the spread of African swine fever throughout Asia caused a decline of 11.5% in terms of the number of cattle, with regional pork output falling by more than 12%.
Most notably, the volume of Vietnamese pork imports last year increased by 44% to roughly 270,000 tonnes.
