PRESS RELEASE

 

Food service sector became one of the most impacted by Covid-19 pandemic and economic depression in Russia; since March 2020, restaurants and cafes has been observing the decline of visitors’ number.

The statistics confirm the dramatic fall, especially in specific regions. Thus, the turnover of the sector decreased by 41% in Kaliningrad region, 30% in Saint Petersburg and 26% in Moscow by the end of June.

At the same time, some leaders of food retail stated that crisis was positive for them, as consumers shifted from public food services to supermarkets, and the growth of like-for-like sales reached 25 to 30% in April-June.
