Furthermore, a Ukrainian company has for the first time been granted authorization to export eggs to the EU. Yasensvit, a company belonging to the agricultural group Ovostar Union with registered office in Stavyshche (Kyiv region), is one of the largest producers of eggs and egg products in Ukraine. Now, it may export eggs of A class to the European Union. The authorization to export eggs has been in force since 12 September 2017. The company intends to start egg supplies in October 2017. The Ovostar subsidiary has applied for approval at the end of July 2017. Earlier, the EU only issued approvals for the import of egg products from Ukraine: respective applications were submitted by the largest participants in the Ukrainian market Imperovo Foods belonging to agricultural holding Avangard and Ovostar in summer 2014.
