Vietnamese aquatic products, fruits introduced at food exhibition in Russia

A number of Russia businesses displayed Vietnamese foods and agricultural products at the 30th International Food Exhibition (WorldFood 2021) in Moscow from September 21 - 24, which attracted over 600 businesses from 30 other countries worldwide.

The businesses introduce diverse products imported from Vietnam, such as plants and vegetables, seafood, processed poultry, milk and dairy products, confectionery, organic food, and beverage products.

Mariso Moscow Co.,Ltd - the distributor of products by Hai Vuong Co. Ltd of Vietnam’s central Khanh Hoa province, exhibited frozen tuna fillet and canned tuna products of the Vietnamese company at the event.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Mariso Moscow sold about 5,000 tonnes of frozen tuna fillet each year in the Russian market. However, it is now facing some difficulties in importing tuna.

Fresh fruits and vegetable products of Vietnam were also introduced by Russian importers at the exhibition.

Russia's MevaFresh Co., Ltd is currently collaborating with a Vietnamese enterprise to import Vietnamese fresh fruit products to serve the demand in the Moscow market.

Currently, this company is working with Vietnamese partners to accelerate the transport of two containers of fresh fruits from Vietnam to Russia.

Aslan Salpaganov, Director of MevaFresh  said that his company wants to regularly buy fresh fruits from Vietnam.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MevaFresh is meeting difficulties in transporting goods by containers from Vietnam to Russia, he added.
