In 2003, Russia introduced import quotas to help domestic producers. During 2010 quotas were cut by 18% to help increase national production. The pork import quota will remain unchanged at 472,000 tons next year, dropping to 425,000 tons in 2012, according to one source. Meanwhile for 2011, the quota for frozen-beef imports will also remain unchanged at 530,000 tons and the quota for chilled beef will remain at 30,000 tons.
