Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/25/2013 -- Elevated inflation will continue to contribute to the development of food consumption values in Belarus, although volumes continue to suffer in the face of the wider economic climate. We see the country's longer-term potential as a food and beverages market remaining relatively subdued on account of operational risks and also negative population trends.
