24 February 2017
According to Ukrstat information in January 2017 Ukrainian companies produced about 97k tons of poultry which is by 27% higher y-o-y.
Industrial output of fresh poultry meat grew y-o-y by almost 30% up to 73k tons, frozen chickens Ц by 18% up to 24.3k tons.
As we reported earlier in Y2016 Ukrainian companies produced 991k tons of poultry meat (by 12% more than in Y2015). Main driver of growth was export: in Y2016 it made 240k tons, +49% vs. previous year, the share of export in total industrial output made 24%. In January 2017 positive export dynamics continued, despite EU import ban, y-o-y growth made 50% up to 11k tons.
In the beginning of February EU import ban for Ukrainian poultry has been partially removed, which should support both output and export in February-March.
