The meat sector in Ukraine: potential for growth
2 April 2014
Meat is one of the fastest growing agricultural commodities in the world: in the last 50 years, total meat production has grown by 300 percent. Meat demand is mainly driven by increasing incomes and changes in consumer preferences. From 2005 to 2010, Ukraine's meat production increased by 39 percent in terms of volume. While the Ukrainian meat market has a good potential for growth, it also faces various sector constraints.
Under the FAO/EBRD Cooperation, a review of the meat sector in Ukraine has been published
, providing an in-depth analysis of the country's meat sector from 2005 to 2010 and gives recommendations for future national policies.
