Ukraine to propose Israel control each batch of eggs
The Ukrainian delegation that has left for Israel to study the issue of detecting the Salmonella Enteritidis bacteria in a batch of eggs delivered from Ukraine will propose the Israeli side introduce an unprecedented control for each batch of eggs, Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food Oleksiy Pavlenko has told reporters.
"They [the delegation] will offer unprecedented controls, each batch will pass an appropriate analysis. We believe that this proposal will satisfy our Israeli colleagues," the minister said.
According to Pavlenko, three weeks ago Ukraine held talks with Israel on increasing the supplies of Ukrainian eggs to 10 million units per year.
"We negotiated three weeks ago to increase the supply of eggs to Israel to ten million," he said.
As reported, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Israel during tests revealed Salmonella Enteritidis in eggs brought from Ukraine and decided to suspend imports of eggs.
