The company’s export to Russia exceeded €242 million in 2013 - 85% of Finnish exports hit by Russian food import ban. Finland reduced foodstuffs supplies to Russia by 63% in August 2014 as compared with July 2014.
On August 7, 2014 Russia introduced a package of response measures to sanction of the United States, Australia, Canada, the European Union and Norway.
