11 August 2014 (12:24)

August 11, 2014. IKEA Russia is prepared to look for alternative solutions that will help to keep its grocery stores attractive to customers despite new food regulations.

The company press service informed UrBC that they are currently looking into the list of agricultural produce, raw materials, and foods that can no longer be imported to Russia in order to determine how these economic measures can affect their range of products.

‘We’ll look for some alternative solutions if necessary, which will allow us to keep making appealing offers to our IKEA Restaurant, IKEA Bistro, and IKEA Foods customers,’ the press service says.

Now according to the Russian Government’s decree, no beef, pork, poultry, fish, fruit, vegetables, cheeses, or dairy foods can be imported into the country from the United States, the EU member states, Canada, Australia, or Norway starting from August 7.
