For Ukrainian beef producers, it was possible to export their products to the market of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Now, at the level of competent authorities between Ukraine and Saudi Arabia, negotiations are underway to open the Kingdom's market for Ukrainian beef. This was reported by the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection by an official letter to the Ukrainian Stock Breeders Association.
In the near future, the visit of Saudi inspectors is planned to assess the system of state control over the production of beef, as well as the inspection of enterprises that express their intention to export beef to Saudi Arabia.
In addition, at the level of the competent authorities of the two states, a process has begun to harmonize the form of the veterinary certificate for the export of Ukrainian beef meat and other meat products from Ukraine to Saudi Arabia.
At present, Ukrainian enterprises already export meat and poultry by-products in Saudi Arabia, for example, in January-July 2017 this figure was 11,352 thousand tons, worth $ 17,617 million.
Enterprises that are interested in exporting beef to Saudi Arabia must submit the required package of documents to the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection no later than December 1, 2017.
