Ukraine to export cold cuts of meat to Israel
Ukraine will export cold cuts of meat to Israel, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has reported on its website, referring to Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Minister Oleksiy Pavlenko.
"From now on Ukrainian farmers can supply cooled meat to the Israeli market. The agreements on beef and poultry supplies to the Israeli market have been achieved," the minister said at a meeting.
He said that the negotiations on resumption of egg supplies from Ukraine to Israel, which were halted in January this year due to unfounded worries about salmonella, were successful.
Ukrainian companies are ready to resume egg deliveries to Israel next week.
The minister expressed confidence that by the end of the year Ukraine will be able to sign a free trade agreement with Israel.
