Dutch vegetables avoid Russian boycott through Turkey

Dutch vegetable growers are avoiding the Russian boycott of Western items using a side-step through another country: Turkey.

'Made in Turkey'

A couple of companies have sent their vegetables to Turkey in blank boxes, which then get a 'Made in Turkey' label. These get transported to Russia, where the Dutch vegetables get eaten - despite the boycott.

 

The method is not allowed, as it is compulsory to clearly state the origin of the food, but a lot of growers risk the fines as they might go bankrupt if they do not manage to sell at all.
