    The United States was once the world's leading wheat exporter, but now is losing its position to Russia and Canada due a stronger dollar, stagnant yields, rising competition and climate change.

    Yes, it is said that Russia is starving to death due to sanctions. But... is it ?  Rolling Eyes

    Russian agriculture main winner from foreign food ban

    The depreciating ruble and increasing domestic market opportunities as a result of the Russian embargo on foreign produce has the country's agriculture conglomerate making plans for aggressive investment and growth.

    Ros Agro said it will raise $250 million to fund investment to fill the gap left by reduced food imports from trade sanctions between Russia and Western countries.

    The current controlling shareholder Vadim Moshkovich plans to purchase up to $100 million of newly issued global depositary receipts.

    Ros Agro and its shareholders have been the biggest beneficiaries of Russia's food embargo. The corporation’s stock price on the London Stock Exchange has almost tripled since August 2014, reaching $16.12 per share as of Monday.

    The country’s leading food producer aims to build a pig breeding complex in Russia's Far East as well as greenhouse facilities in central Russia and make acquisitions by selling UK-listed shares.

    The company is going to invest aggressively and grow,” said financial analyst Svyatoslav Arsenov as quoted by Bloomberg, stressing that the ruble devaluation had made the sector very attractive.

    Russia, listed as the world’s ninth largest food manufacturer in 2013, reduced imports by nearly 40 percent to $26.5 billion two years ago, according to government data.

    Smart move by Vietnam. We should be doing the same, but we haven't and we won't, and given the Russian agri-sector is fast becoming self-sufficient we wouldn't have much longer anyway all things considered. We should have jumped straight in there in 2014 when the sanctions first hit.

    Heh, wishful thinking.

    Yeah, we have a lot of expertise in dairy... when the EU and the US and Canada and Aussie started sanctions on Russia we should have stepped up and offered to fill the gap... I think Russia would be a much better market than the EU or US.

    I remember in the 1990s that there were Kiwis investing in supermarkets in Russia and making money.

    Shame we have to hitch our wagon to Europe and the US all the time... cry

    Thai & Chinese investors to build $1bn dairy plant in [Russia 80,000 cow...]
    Published time: 18 May, 2016 10:54

    Here: https://www.rt.com/business/343412-thailand-russia-billion-dairy/

    Thailand's largest agribusiness Charoen Pokphand Group (CP) and China’s Banner Dairy are to spend $1 billion building a diary in the Russian city of Ryazan. The facility intends to produce 400 thousand tons of milk products annually.

    The Russian Direct Investment Fund will reportedly seal the deal with the foreign investors on the sidelines of the Thai-Russian Business Dialogue forum in Saint Petersburg.

    The plant will include dairy farms with 80,000 milking cows and 40,000–60,000 hectares of grain, as well as a feed factory, the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund Kirill Dmitriev told Vedomosti daily.

    The project is expected to be up and running within 3-5 years and would be the biggest raw milk producer in Russia with a capacity of 300,000–350,000 tons a year. The CP Group will run the enterprise.

    Last year, the Thai conglomerate said it was looking to invest $600 million in meat and milk production in Russia, and was examining opportunities in several Russian regions.

    Founded in 1921, CP Group is one of world's largest conglomerates with investments in over 20 countries. The corporation's Charoen Pokphand Foods is one of the biggest producers of animal feed with plants in Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Burma, Turkey, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan and US.

    Another Asian company investing into the production of meat and milk in Russia is Vietnam’s TH True Milk. The groundbreaking for a livestock breeding complex and milk processing plant took place on Wednesday in the town of Volokolamsk, in the Moscow region. The company intends to spend $500 million and open its first facility with 45,000 head of livestock next year.

    80k the Thai. $1 billion
    350k the Vietnan. $2.7 billion
    100k the China. ¥1 billion yuan

    500k+ milk cow 2020! Surprised

       Thus, the company entered the annual turnover of the oyster, equal to the total value of imports of this product to the Russian Federation. This makes it possible to talk about the full import substitution marketable oysters domestic manufacturer.

       According to statistics for 2013 (before the introduction of sanctions banning) imports of oysters in Russia amounted to 5 million pieces. Thus, the company OOO Russian Black Sea Company “Crimean seafood” went on the speed at which the import of seafood is unfounded.

    https://www.rt.com/politics/344287-russian-far-east-region-allocates/

    Property minister of the Amur Region in the Russian Far East has told reporters that the authorities had allocated 500,000 hectares of land for the free handover to anyone willing to start a business in agriculture or tourism.

    “We have allocated 500,000 hectares of planted forests and 50,000 of agricultural lands for the program. Of the 50,000 hectares, about one third is tilled soil, the rest are pastures and hayfields,” Sergey Khovrat was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

    The minister also told reporters that so far only 10 people had announced their interest in the free land handover program, all of them beekeepers who already owned some land in the region.

    As far as I know, cold climate in Russia is a considerable obstacle for Russian or Russia-based dairy industry. TH True Milk claimed that they will implement high-techs to deal with the cold, and I am quite curious about how people do it.

    Russia doesn't know what to do with excess meat

    Hilarious. So not only did Russia pretty much drop EU for meat imports, it's domestic production has been growing so much, that now they are in fear of oversupply. So expect to see cheap meat in Russia.

    I guess all those who pushed the idea of Russia starving cause of Putin will b crying tonight.

    Great news.   Russian meat should be world class in terms of quality.   Russia is not like the precious west and obsessed with
    getting cows and other animals to market by doping them with steroids and antibiotics.    Oversupply seems a bit of a stretch
    and they don't have to sell the live animals for slaughter using quotas.   They can hold them until the market conditions are better.
    Of course there are feed expenses.  But....

    Two massive circles in Poland and Litva, and these countries are well-known for anti-Russia sentiments.

    Ironic. Countries where there are significant anti-Russia sentiments were actually doing a lot of business with Russia.

    Agro Super Green Farm [English title]
    Published on May 12, 2016

    Agro-Invest is an impressive turn-key greenhouse project (20 ha) in the Kaluga region, a special economic zone located 300 km from Moscow, Russia. This greenhouse complex will make a tangible contribution to the region’s goal of becoming self-sufficient in the production of vegetables in the longer term. This is the first stage of a project which will ultimately comprise a total of 100 hectares of greenhouse on 238 hectares of land. Partners Dalsem and Hoogendoorn have captured this inspiring project on video, where the creation of this turn-key project is outlined.

    Not much into conspiracy theories myself... but there must be some reason anti Russian material and propaganda is so popular in these two countries... perhaps the goal was to shift the trade in favour of Europe in general or the US... it has clearly worked much better than they expected... but not the way they expected... instead of people in those countries changing their purchase choices, Russia has actively cut them off from their usual supplies.

    I am sure Russia will find other sources of goods, but for the Polish and Latvians I suspect they will now have to break into new markets that they have not previously been a part of... wonder how the rest of the EU will enjoy the new competition... especially when they have lost their market in Russia too.

    Sanction Saga, chaper XXXXXXXXXX

    https://www.rt.com/business/348916-putin-prolongs-food-embargo/

    Russia prolongs Western food embargo until end of 2017

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree that prolongs economic sanctions on some Western products from August of this year until the end of 2017.
    A ban on importing certain agricultural produce, foods and raw materials from countries that have sanctioned Russia was first introduced in the summer of 2014. Moscow extended its counter measures in response to anti-Russia sanctions in June last year.

    The latest decree, aimed at "protecting Russia's national interests," followed suggestions put forward by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in late May. Medvedev tasked the government with preparing a package of measures that would potentially be in force until late 2017. The draft package was then introduced to the president.

    Putin's decree says that the government may offer proposals to change the ban's terms "when necessary."
