Alberta pork producers worried about Russia's ban on Canadian food products

RED DEER, Alta. - The organization that represents Alberta hog producers is disappointed that Russia is closing its borders to Canadian food products.

Alberta Pork says the move could set the pork industry back from what has been a comeback year after a long period of hard times.

Executive director Darcy Fitzgerald says Alberta producers export $400 million worth of pork products per year around the world.

The one year ban on Canadian food products is in retaliation to sanctions Ottawa has imposed on Russia over the conflict in Ukraine.

In 2012, Canadian producers exported about $550 million worth of pork products to Russia. (CKGY)
