At the end of last year, Russia became the leading exporter of chocolate to China, and also set a record for the volume of confectionery supplies to this country. The volume amounted to a little less than $ 1.4 billion, RIA Novosti quotes the head of the Federal Center for the Development of Agricultural Products Export of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia Dmitry Krasnov.

The expert noted that the Chinese market presented products of many Russian companies. According to Dmitry Krasnov, “this is what determines the high potential, including the development of export”.

President of the Askond Association of Confectionery Industry Sergei Nosenko said that the Russian market ais filled with confectionery, and manufacturers are considering options for marketing their products in Europe, Asia and other regions.

It is reported that last year half of all imported chocolate confectionery products in China were from Russia. Analysts see potential in the chocolate market, attributing this to the fact that, according to statistics, the Chinese are increasing its consumption. In addition, an increase in demand is expected due to an increase in the number of consumers of high quality products.
