Food trade   Turkish growers in Antalya are being hit hard
According to report a first party of 3,000 tonnes of oranges, lemons, grapefruits, tomatoes and cabbage arrived in the port of Novorossiysk last week. Previously only trials and small volumes from the Middle Eastern country were exported to Russia.

The fruits and vegetables are brought onto the market in Moscow. The biggest challenge for the export is the quality of the packaging.

Turkish growers in Antalya are being hit hard by the boycott. Hungarian apple growers are complaining about the Polish apples flooding the market. Russia and China are working together on an online platform to offer Russian products in China.

The Palestinians are negotiating with the Eurasian Economic Union on access to the member states' market. There is talk of a 0-charge for the Palestinian products. The Russian authorities are said to be positive about the quality of the Palestinian products.
