This is stated in the message of the state service for food safety and consumer protection.
As noted, the certificate establishes permanent zoning of the territory of Ukraine for uninterrupted trade in poultry products, even in the event of outbreaks of avian influenza.
The document became the fifth export certificate that Ukraine and Jordan have recently agreed upon. Earlier, the responsible authorities of both countries agreed on the forms of certificates for the export from Ukraine of chilled frozen beef, chilled sheep meat, cattle, and sheep for slaughter.
“The Jordanian market is important for Ukrainian exporters of poultry meat. Now they got new opportunities on it. This decision is good news for all our poultry farmers,” said Vladyslava Mahaletska, the Chairwoman of the state food and consumer service.
Ukraine is currently one of the world's top ten exporters of chicken meat and has the status of a country free of highly pathogenic avian influenza. According to last year’s results, the country took 8th place in the world ranking – the volume of sales of these products abroad reached 431 thousand tons.
“And although we are now seeing a 4% reduction in poultry production in the first half of 2021, exports remain consistently high. This gives reason to hope for further high places in the ranking of the world’s largest exporters of poultry meat,” commented Svitlana Lytvyn, an analyst of the Ukrainian club of agrarian business.
As Ukrinform reported, in July 2021, Ukrainian producers were authorized for exports of poultry and poultry products to the Republic of Liberia.
