Russian herring imports Jan - Oct 2014: Strong volumes from Faroes, Iceland offset ban

Analyze all the latest figures of Russian imports of herring from around the globe, for January to October 2014

After tumbling by 57% in September due to the sanctions, Russia's herring imports recovered in October thanks to strong volumes from Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Indeed, Iceland more than tripled its herring exports to Russia year-on-year in October. Compiled by Customs Inform, Herring Imports to Russia Jan – Oct 2014 reveals that Russia’s herring imports at first took a heavy blow from the Aug. 7 sanctions imposed by its government on western nations' food imports, which cut off access from its key herring supplier Norway. While export volumes were on par year-on-year prior to the ban and all the way to the end of August, they more than halved (-57%) year-on-year in September as a result of the ban. This suggested that Iceland and the Faroe Islands -- the only European exporters still allowed to sell herring to Russia -- were initially unable to fill the gap. However, this changed in October. During that month, Iceland and the Faroes shipped strong volumes to Russia. Thanks to this, imports in October were down by just 10% year-on-year, while Russia's imports of herring for the first ten months of the year are down by 'just' 8%, Find out this and more in this report, which details all the key data on herring volumes, importers and exporters into Russia for January through October 2014, with a comparison with data for Jan - Oct 2013. The report provides a ranking of Russia's top 60 herring importers, and of the top exporters, for the period.
