The volume of production of french fries in the domestic market of Russia grew by a record 480%, analysts at the marketing agency ROIF Expert calculated in the framework of the study “Market of french fries in Russia: research and forecast until 2023”. In value terms, the total volume of the Russian market for this product grew by 38%.
The main reason for the sharp growth was the launch of the Lam Weston Belaya Dacha LLC plant in Lipetsk, which FruitNews previously wrote about (https://fruitnews.ru/technology/17-jams/49501-zavod-po-pererabotke-kartofelya-otkrylsya-v-lipetskoj-oblasti.html) As a result, the Lipetsk region becomes the leader in the production of french fries among all regions of Russia.
“The Russian market of French fries after the launch of a new production in Lipetsk is radically changing in the assessment of basic market indicators, while the volume of the French fries market shows significant growth. The aggregate indicators of the volume of production of French fries in the Russian market demonstrate not just positive growth rates, but absolute maximization! " - noted in the study.
Amid growing production of french fries, exports are growing and imports of these products are declining. It is noted that since the beginning of 2019, the volume of French fries imported into Russia has decreased by almost 50%. At the same time, exports of Russian french fries increased by almost 6 times. In the near future, according to analysts, the Russian market for french fries will only grow.
