Already from July 24, four Ukrainian poultry enterprises will start export to European Union countries. In particular, permission for this was received by PJSC Myronivska Poultry Farm, Myronivsky Meat Processing Plant Lehko, LLC Agromars and LLC Sniatynska Nova Poultry Farm.

Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Mykola Prysiazhniuk has said about this, Ukrinform reports with reference to the ministry's press service.

“In December last year, a decision has been taken on Ukraine's entering a list of countries, having a right to export poultry products to the EU. Since that time on, examinations were held at enterprises, which wanted to enter the European market with their products. Production has to comply with all requirements of the EU law,” the Minister noted.

According to the Minister, by results of examinations, the State Veterinary and Phytosanitary Service of Ukraine gave the European Commission's Directorate General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) a list of enterprises for taking a decision.

“Currently, the coordination procedure has been completed. Exporting enterprises are PJSC Myronivska Poultry Farm, Myronivsky Meat Processing Plant Lehko, LLC Agromars and LLC Sniatynska Nova Poultry Farm. Already, from July 24, they will be able to start exports. For Ukraine, as the agrarian country, this is very important, since national producers for the first time received possibility to supply not only raw materials to the European consumers, but ready-made foodstuffs,” Prysiazhniuk emphasized.
