Ukraine opens to more Canadian beef imports

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and International Trade Minister Ed Fast have announced the Ukrainian market has opened for beef from cattle under 30 months of age and ready-to-eat meat.

In 2014 Ukraine lifted a ban on imports of other Canadian beef products imposed after Canada reported a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in 2003.

A government release said Canadian beef and ready-to-eat meat establishments eligible for export to the European Union are immediately granted access to the Ukrainian market. The release said the government is working closely with Ukraine to expand the number of establishments that are eligible to export, pending inspections from Ukrainian authorities.

Ukraine’s global imports of beef products in 2014 were $17.1 million.
