Twenty food manufacturers from Serbia presented their products at the recently held international food fair in Moscow. These companies made over 900 contacts and concluded EUR 25 million worth of export agreements.
For the first time at this fair, manufacturers from Serbia successfully presented a selection of meat products to Russian buyers. The company LTS signed an agreement on the export of EUR 1 million worth of meat products per month.
In association with the Serbian Investment and Export Promotion Agency (SIEPA), the USAID Agribusiness Project backed the participation of Serbian companies in that food fair for the fourth consecutive year.
When compared to the last year, companies doubled the value of agreed exports this year. Serbian companies show growing interest in participating in this event because there is a huge potential for the export of their products to the Russian market having in mind the Free Trade Agreement concluded between Serbia and Russia.
