Due to Russian food ban

(ANSA) - WARSAW - The export of vegetables from Poland fell by 19% in 2015 compared to the year before, while the export of fruit decreased by 10% in the same period of reference, local media reported citing the data released by the Foundation of assistance programmes for agriculture (Fapa). Analysts claim that the major factor to determine the decrease has been the Russian food ban introduced in August 2014 as a response to the sanctions against Moscow over the Ukrainian crisis. The rise in exports towards the other EU countries has partially compensated for the loss, with and increase of 181,000 tons of fresh fruit and 100,000 tons of vegetables compared to 2014. According to Fapa, Poland exported a total of 680,000 tons of vegetables and 1,1 million tons of fresh fruit in 2015. (ANSA).
