NOVO-OGRAYOVO, August 28, /ITAR-TASS/. Domestic producers will dramatically increase food supply on the domestic market within the next three to five months, an official said on Wednesday.
"Earlier, Russian trade networks didn’t pay much attention to domestic suppliers preferring to work with foreign countries and companies, but now they have to turn to our suppliers," Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said at a conference of government officials chaired by President Vladimir Putin.
"This work has just begun; contacts have been established, and our suppliers will gradually adapt to the requirements set for foreign exporters," Dvorkovich said.
Russian Agricultural Minister Nikolai Fyodorov said "we quickly noted an increase in domestic food, cheese and dairy production."
Even producers did not expect such a rapid increase: cheese production jumped by 10% in just a few days, the minister said.
