Eucolait welcomes full market access for Ukrainian products

Eucolait welcomes the temporary trade-liberalisation measures applying to Ukrainian products which were published in the Official Journal today.
This will allow all Ukrainian products to enter the EU market duty free and quota free.
This will allow all Ukrainian products to enter the EU market duty free and quota free.
We trust that this measure, together with the establishment of so called solidarity lanes and new approvals of Ukrainian processing establishments, will facilitate Ukrainian dairy exports to the EU and to the world market. We will continue supporting the Ukrainian industry to this end. 
Not all manufactured dairy products can be consumed locally and these exports will bring much needed additional capital into the country.
Small increases in imports from Ukraine could already be observed in March and based on expressions of interest from members, we expect this trend to continue.
In this context, we recognise that Ukraine’s dairy exports are marginal when compared to other key food commodities such as cereals and oilseeds. 
Overall, Eucolait hopes that the trade facilitation measures in combination with support to Ukraine’s agricultural sector will contribute to improving the situation in Ukraine and be beneficial for global food security.
