Meat substitute Hit by Russian import sanctions

Tags: , , ,


A US produced meat substitute is a victim of Russia’s counter-sanctions on Western food imports.

Imports of the plant-based meat alternatives have been suspended because of a dispute over whether the products violate Russia’s import ban on Western agricultural products.

The food import regulations were introduced in 2014 in retaliation against EU and U.S. sanctions on Moscow over the annexation of Crimea.

Russian customs officials believe the products fall under the embargo and have halted all imports. A spokesperson for the distributor confirmed it had suspended supplies to Russia, citing the dispute with Russia’s customs authorities as well as a global container ship deficit.
