Stumbled upon a story about a Murmansk-based Finnish businessman who actively buys and sells berries.
Osmo Kolu came to Russia 10 years ago and immersed himself into the local scene. Now he buys blueberry and cloudberry from the locals, sorts, packs, and freezes them, and sells either locally or to Europe.
An interview with him may be of interest to anyone contemplating doing business in Russia.
I’d like to remind you that the general level of prices is now the lowest it has been in the last 5-7 years due to the recent fall of the rouble, giving a significant advantage to anyone contemplating investing into and doing business in Russia.
