Next week, an Ukrainian veterinarian delegation will pay a visit to eight abattoirs and meat processing plants in Poland. This could well be announcing the opening up of the Ukrainian borders, for long a subject for debate.
Poland welcomes its pork exports expansion, because its production grew too. In the first months of 2006, slaughterhouses produced 1.09 tonnes of pigmeat – a 10% growth in comparison to the same period in 2005.
Russia on the other hand remains closed for Polish pork. The world’s largest country keeps its borders closed for various Polish products, both from animal and vegetable origin.
