The Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Department

Responsibilities

The Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Department is responsible for promoting the Danish Food Cluster’s interests in Russia. We do that by strengthening relations between relevant Danish and Russian authorities, associations and companies. We are working for all part of the Danish Food Cluster, i.e. including companies and associations in e.g. the agro and ingredients industry.

In more detail the Department is responsible for:

  • Strategic market building and commercial advisory to Danish FAF-companies on how to grow their exports and investments in Russia. As such, we are responsible for the Embassy’s Trade Council offerings to companies in the Danish Food Cluster. For the Embassy’s Trade Council offerings see: https://rusland.um.dk/en/the-trade-council/
  • Political and trade policy issues related to FAF
  • Relations to the Russian government and authorities on FAF-related issues
  • Market intelligence and reporting to key stakeholders in the Danish FAF-sector (e.g. ministries and business associations)
