Until now, Rwanda relied heavily on Russia for wheat and fertiliser imports, with at least 64 per cent of wheat coming from Russia.

Russia is now grappling with export and import sanctions imposed in retaliation for its military raid on Ukraine.
The Prime Minister of Rwanda recently told journalists that the country is looking for alternative sources of supply of wheat imports.

In 2021, Russia was the top exporter of wheat, exporting 18 per cent of global shipments, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation.

Ukraine accounted for 10 per cent global exports.
