This was stated by the head of the State service for food safety and consumer protection, Vladislava Magoletska.
According to Magoletska, the most significant growth occurred in meat and edible offal — 164%, in grain the increase was 46%, in vegetables — 25%.
"Export to China is just as interesting for Ukrainian producers and exporters as it is difficult to open new positions. Today, increasing supplies to the export direction of the PRC is one of the priorities for the state," Magoletska said.
She added that today China is the leader in the number of commodity items for which work is underway to open markets for Ukrainian producers. This list includes flour, fish and fish products, eggs and egg products, wheat, rapeseed, sorghum, soybean meal, apples, blueberries, poultry meat, peas, beans, cherries, pet food, malt, mixed feed for farm animals, poultry, and pond fish, beef collagen casings, frozen semi-finished products containing products of animal origin, vegetable origin and/or processed products of animal origin, cereals, raspberries.
According to Magoletska, the next stage of opening the export of fresh blueberries to China is expected shortly, which provides for a review of the conditions for the production of this berry in a remote online format, as well as the approval of documents on the opening of markets for poultry, peas, and blueberries.
