In early May 2018, Ukraine got the right to export beef to the Republic of Turkey as reported by the press service of the Ukrainian State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection. This resulted from the work of the technical mission of the General Directorate of Food and Control of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock of the Republic of Turkey which carried out the assessment of the system of state control over the production of beef in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection reported that in late April Turkish inspectors conducted a mission in order to thoroughly examine the system of state control over the beef production in Ukraine. The mission was carried out with the aim of recognizing the system of state control over the beef production in Ukraine as a whole, which means the possibility of starting exporting these Ukrainian products to Turkey. For this purpose, the inspectors got acquainted with the functions and powers of the Ukrainian State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection, its territorial bodies, examined the activities of the laboratory of the State Scientific and Research Institute of Laboratory Diagnostics and Veterinary and Sanitary Expertise located in Kyiv and the Ukrainian State Agency for Animal Identification and Registration, and inspected a number farms that raise cattle as well as slaughterhouse companies that are interested in exporting food products to Turkey.
Based on the results of these works, it was resolved to open the Turkish market for Ukrainian beef exports. Thus, the authorities are currently finalizing the form of the veterinary certificate necessary for the export of Ukrainian beef to the Republic of Turkey.
