We are trying to find a new market for Kamchatka products. In addition to restaurants, we are counting on ordinary consumers," he said. Rafanov.

As noted by Rafanov, the fund is engaged in supporting the legal harvesting of wild plants and is currently negotiating with metropolitan restaurateurs and owners of delicatessen stores. In addition to the fern, Kamchatka harvesters are ready to supply wild cherry, kopor tea, honeysuckle, blueberries, various kinds of mushrooms, fish and seafood to central Russia.
