Ukrainian poultry products could return to the Israeli market by the end of this spring, Ukraine’s Agricultural Policy and Food Ministry has reported.
The ministry said that the talks between Ukraine’s State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Rights Protection and Israel’s Veterinary Service were being held.
“The resumption of poultry products exports to Israel is an important issue for Ukraine. There are technical formalities. Active work between our countries is being carried out. I hope that the issue will have success,” Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Taras Kutoviy said.
Head of State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Rights Protection Volodymyr Lapa said that some changes were seen in regulation in Israel. This resulted in a fall in demand for Ukrainian products thanks to internal production.
“We are holding a permanent dialog with representatives of Israel’s Veterinary Service. Soon our Israeli colleagues will visit Ukraine to make all arrangements,” Lapa said. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
