Follow us on:

June 3 (Bloomberg) -- Russia has “enough” vegetables to meet domestic demand without imports from the European Union, Agriculture Minister Yelena Skrynnik said.

The 27-nation union accounted for 11 percent of Russia’s tomato imports and 5 percent of its cucumber imports in 2010, she said, according to a statement on the ministry website dated yesterday. More than 70 percent of Russian imports come between January and April, Skrynnik said.

Russia banned imports of fresh vegetables from the EU after an E.coli outbreak in Germany. The EU is seeking an immediate withdrawal of the ban.
