Russia removes poultry import ban from Ukraine poultry farm



The ban on importation of poultry goods produced by the Myronivska poultry farm in Ukraine has been lifted by Russia's federal service for veterinary and phytosanitary supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor), as announced by Myronivskyi Khliboprodukt.


"Rosselkhoznadzor lifted its restrictions on export of the enterprise's livestock products to the Russian Federation on February 2 this year," the company said in the statement.


This ban was temporarily imposed on October 18, 2010.


Myronivskyi Khliboprodukt plans to begin exporting up to 3,200 tonnes of chicken to Russia per month in February.


As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Myronivskyi Khliboprodukt produces poultry meat under the Nasha Riaba trademark, semi-finished meat products under the Lehko trademark, beef delicacies under the Certified Angus trademark, and goose liver delicacy under the Foie Gras trademark.


Myronivskyi Khliboprodukt's Board Chairman Yurii Kosiuk owns about 65% of the shares in the company; the remaining shares are in free circulation on the London Stock Exchange.
