Russian restaurants have replaced dishes with imported ingredients

Russian restaurateurs have revised the menu in their establishments: fish, meat, sauces and oils from foreign suppliers have been replaced with domestic products. Businessmen took this step due to disruptions in supplies and rising prices for ingredients.

Russian restaurants have replaced dishes with imported ingredients

Since February, the cost of meals has increased by 20%. Restaurateurs are now trying to contain price increases and find alternative suppliers of ingredients that have risen in price, write “News”.

In March, the volume of orders in Yakitoria decreased by about 60%, but now consumer activity has gradually begun to recover. However, it is still far from last year’s figure: traffic is now 15% lower than the same period in 2021.

Ginza Project Moscow reported that the structure of consumption has also changed: guests began to prefer strong drinks more often, but less often elite alcohol and order two mid-range dishes rather than one expensive one.

Against the backdrop of rising prices for imported alcohol up to 100%, restaurateurs began to replace it with Russian alcohol, which did not rise in price so significantly. In this way, restaurant managers reduce costs, as there are fewer consumers willing to pay for drinks at the new prices. At the same time, it was not possible to replace all foreign alcohol, since some products cannot be grown in the climatic conditions of Russia.

In April, a number of Russian retailers and restaurateurs decided to suspend the opening of new outlets and establishments in 2022. This is due to interruptions in the supply of equipment, economic uncertainty and problems with financing.
