FMCG sales growth due to COVID-19 Russia April 2020, by product

In the second week of April 2020, toilet paper sales in Russia decreased by 20 percent compared to the same period in the previous year. This could be explained by panic buying by Russians due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Preparing for a potential isolation due to the pandemic, Russians stocked up on sugar, buckwheat, and other foods with a long shelf life in March 2020, so the sales growth of these categories in April 2020 decreased.
