Singapore has opened its market for Ukrainian pork. “For the first time since long a foreign market has opened for Ukrainian pork. Singapore’s regulator has accredited a Ukrainian enterprise for export of thermally processed/tinned pork and chicken meat,” the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection said.
It also said that those were the first steps towards the opening of the global market for Ukrainian pork.
Myronivsky Hliboproduct (MHP) sold 153,140 tonnes of chicken meat to third parties in April-June 2018 (Q2), which is 3% less than in April-June 2017. Sales of chicken meat in the first half of the year increased by 2%, to 288,440 tonnes, the company said in a report on the London Stock Exchange on Wednesday.
Poultry production volumes in Q2 2018 increased by 7% to 155,725 tonnes (Q2 2017: 145,820 tonnes) and in H1 2018 increased by 7% to 307,890 tonnes (H1 2017: 287,694 tonnes), due to increased production of heavier chicken and decreased share of thinning, the report said.
