Foodstuffs export figures

UNIAN reported that while opening the Ukrainian food producers show Apr 9th Ukrainian Vice-Premier Kozachenko said that export volume of foodstuffs in Ukraine made up over US $188 mn during the past two years.

According to him, this shows high pace of development though in certain sectors only. There are sectors where potential is much larger "especially diary products, cheese products".

According to him, such sectors are among the most promising and investments should be made into such.

Kozachenko also said that leading diary products exports were milk powder and casein, thus bringing milk prices down. Increasing cheese variety number should increase the volume of diary products sales.

Expanding markets within CIS countries remains a priority and certification of Ukrainian products abroad is one of the crucial points.
