Ukraine resumes poultry exports to the EU
Ukrainian poultry exports to the EU have been resumed this week, after two months of suspension, announced Ukrainian Economy, Trade and Agriculture Development Deputy Minister Taras Kachka. "Highly pathogenic avian influenza cases were recorded in Ukraine in the winter months. For the period of detecting these cases, exports were suspended", he stated in a post on social media.
The European Union on March 17 recognized the zoning of Ukraine for highly pathogenic avian influenza, which will allow the country to supply safe poultry products from uninfected areas to the EU countries, even taking into account the current quarantine restrictions in areas where cases of the disease were previously recorded.
The recognition of the zoning will allow Ukraine to resume trade with the EU in poultry products. This will happen, even taking into account the fact that there are still quarantine restrictions in the zones where there have been cases of the disease and supply safe products from uninfected areas," Head of the service Vladyslava Mahaletska said, quoted by Interfax news agency.
Taras Kachka noted that the rapid recovery of exports is a sign of normal, high-quality and friendly cooperation between Ukraine and the EU, which is provided by the Economy Ministry and the State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection.
As reported, on January 23, Ukraine's State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection announced the suspension of poultry meat exports to the European Union due to an outbreak of bird flu.
