“The ban will be a challenge for us. But we will meet it by finding other markets. We hope that the restrictions will not last long because we would not like to lose the Russian market,” Hakan Bjorklund said.

“The import ban will affect other EU countries to a greater degree as Russia is their biggest buyer of fruit, vegetables and meat,” Bjorklund said.
