They do Garry.
A lot of effort is put into the Russian food product industry, but those are things that won't give fruits overnight.
The real thing here is the fact, that some food pretends to be a status symbol, and people will use them to show how successful they are.
One eats Gran Padano cheese or Parmesan, drink Don Perignan and Evian water not because those are particularly better than others, but they are more "prestige".
No matter how silly "prestige" sounds applied to something that will transfer to shit anyway
It requires changes in the mentality.
For example, a guy from Russia won two of the most prestigious cheese contests some time ago, with his two author recipe kinds of cheese.
But you can hardly find that info, no chance to try these cheeses, and even less chance you can buy them, even in the most specialized cheese stores you have there, right?
There is a great cheese called "adygian", or aдыгейский in Russian. It is smoked&dried, hard cheese with intense flavor.
Its quality as a product is on pair with best cheeses of that kind you can have. It can easily replace all hard cheeses for several applications.
Even heard of it? Naah, me neither, till last week I could try it.
Ever tried Belarussian butter? Or a Russian one? It is a taste of my childhood, a pure taste of genuine milk&cream products, when all you needed was a piece of fresh bread and a tasty, full of flavor and smell butter spread on it. When I buy butter in the general store, those don't taste and smell like that, for regular money. To have a taste of my childhood, one must buy the most expensive types, costing double. Or a Russian/Belarusian ones.
Soon, you will have the chance to buy seafood labeled "made in Russia".
You can try Russian oysters, lobsters, and mules any moment now - something hardly imaginable before 2014.
The Chinese market is opening for Russian food more and more, a single transmission with Jinping eating Russian ice creams increased its export to China tenfold.
That all brings $, and for that $ you can invest even more.
No accidentally, Russian food export surpassed the weaponry a long time ago and galloping.
