In 2016 Ukraine began using quotas for duty-free export of dairy products exporting dairy cream products (24.4% of quota used). Ukraine has also begun to export dried milk (30%) and butter (46%).
During their meeting last Thursday, the EU has put the re sale of intervention Milk Powder back on the agenda. The proposal is to sell 22.150 mt by tender on the 13th December. On 24th November an official vote will be held to whether or not to execute the proposal (by the time of the […]
