Ukraine: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Demand for food products served as an anchor for the Ukrainian economy in 2016. On-going political and economic crisis resulted in general economic slowdown in 2013-15. The population’s real disposable incomes were undermined by currency devaluation resulting in food consumption drop. Some signs of economic stabilization and food product import increases are observed in 2016. The trading environment remains complicated due to exchange rate fluctuations and food-safety control system reform aimed at compliance with EU rules and norms. Potential exporters are advised to secure an experienced Ukrainian partner with established contacts who is capable of navigating a myriad of obstacles facing imported agricultural products.
