Ukraine set to start exporting eggs to the EU
Ukraine-based egg product manufacturing companies Avangard and Ovostar may start first shipments of egg products to the European Union this month, according to representatives of the Union of Poultry Breeders of Ukraine.
On 23 April, the EU unilaterally opened its markets for Ukrainian goods within the autonomous preferential trade regime between Ukraine and the EU. Preferential trade regime provides the reduction of customs duties for supplies of Ukrainian goods, within certain quotas.
The quota for duty-free supply of egg products and albumen from Ukraine to the EU is 1.5 tonnes per year, while for eggs in shell – 3 tonnes per year.
