Moldova’s National Agency of Food Security allowed Ukrainian products of animal origin for export to this country. Ukraine’s Minister of Food and Agriculture Policy Olexiy Pavlenko said this January 4, as quoted by the Ministry’s press service.
In total, 35 Ukrainian enterprises will be able to supply their production to the Moldovan market. The list includes 19 milk producers, 11 meat producers, 3 fish products companies and 2 egg producer companies.
Pavlenko mentioned that previously, the European Commission published the ultimate decision to include Ukrainian dairy companies into the official list of approved food exporters to the EU. Since January 10, these enterprises will be able to send their products to the EU market.
According to the Ministry of Food and Agriculture Policy, in 2015, only three Ukrainian enterprises had access to the Moldovan market.
Previously, President Petro Poroshenko said in several years, Ukrainian goods will open up the EU market, since the EU-Ukraine Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area started working on January 1, 2016.
