If we consider the top ten leaders of Russain fruit and vegetable trade market now, we will point out the following: the majority develop their business on the basis of banana and citrus fruits market, which has sharply increased since the recent ten years. This market has not stopped increasing yet, but its development has signficantly slowed down, so that the companies try to extend thier assortment by means of the other fruit&vegetable products.

But, today both the experts and market players are inclined to think that the revolution is close both in the sphere of the assortment extension and in marketing.
