Agriculture Minister Carlos Casamiquela predicted that Argentine food export to Russia “could increase between 1,800 and 2,000 million dollars” and expected the operations to begin on September 15, when officials and business leaders of both countries meet in Moscow’s World Food exhibition.

Casamiquela praised the “opportunity” posed by the ban to US, Canadian, Australian, and European products set by Moscow after the West’s sanctions for over Russian intervention in Ukraine.

“Russia has stopped to buy 10 billion dollars from its previous suppliers,” Casamiquela explained. “We think we can increase our export offer to 1,800-2,000 million dollars,” he added.

“The expectations are huge,” the minister said. “Russia has called all food-producing countries for supply, including Argentina.”

The official highlighted the prospects to increase chicken meat exports as well as dairy products, fish, bovine meat, legumes, fresh fruits, and grape products.
