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. The retaliatory sanctions also ban for one year ban the import of almost all kinds of meat from these countries to Russia.

According to the European Commission, the Russian embargo has affected 4.2% of total exports 28 EU countries to the total worth of 5 billion euro.
