Russia eyes Nicaragua seafood

Friday, October 10, 2014

Russia’s ban on many Western food imports presents a great opportunity for seafood exports from Nicaragua, as Russian importers express their interest in shrimp supplies from this Central American country.

“Imposition of sanctions has opened up new opportunities for Nicaraguan suppliers,” Sergey Dankvert, head of the Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor, said.

The Rosselkhoznadzor watchdog is ready not only to update its earlier agreements with Nicaragua but also to work out new ones for deliveries of new products, Dankvert said.
