Artem Belov said that Saudi Arabia and other countries in the region are a priority for Russian exports of dairy products, as there is a significant potential for consumption of dairy products
According to the expert, the main products for export to this region are cheeses: especially soft and processed cheeses - as well as cottage cheese and butter. Artem Belov added that such Russian exchange-traded products as whole milk powder remain popular in Saudi Arabia.
