Pork production in 2015 is expected to decrease by 4 percent, influenced by the ongoing political and economic crisis and subsequent decline in consumer demand. Similarly imports of pork will also drop by over 80 percent due to currency devaluation and consumer re-orientation to more affordable poultry meat. All exports of pork to Russia are expected to cease completely. Production of beef will resume with a slight decline following problems in the dairy market caused by Russia’s import ban on Ukrainian dairy products. Beef imports will also decrease considerably.
