Despite the active growth of domestic production, in 2018 import to Russia of fresh vegetables of greenhouse group (tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, pepper, lettuce) grew and approached 0.9 million tons, "Growth Technology" company counted. Thus import is gradually restored after sharp falling in 2015 — 2016 as a result of embargo imposition. As appears from data of FCS, in comparison with the 2017th deliveries in physical expression grew more than by 9%. About 65% of the imported greenhouse group vegetables are the share of tomatoes, 19% — of paprika, 14% — of cucumbers.

The CEO of "Growth Technology" Tamara Reshetnikova first of all explains dynamics with increase in internal consumption.
