Gateway to dairy production and products

Strengthening Ukraine’s Dairy Sector

Country Ukraine
Year 2017

Ukraine represents one of the most fertile agriculture regions of the world and is traditionally a net exporter of milk and dairy products. However, as imports of dairy products have risen, exports have declined. Raising the average milk production and adhering to milk quality standards has become critically important in light of developing issues. 
In 2013, FAO Investment Centre and the EBRD helped form the Ukrainian Dairy Sector Working Group with the intention of addressing obstacles and transforming the sector. With the introduction of change to government legislation and the development of the investment case for industrialization, knowledge share was facilitated and farmers were able to invest in their own facilities and futures. Investment has successfully benefitted the dairy industry in Ukraine by encouraging collaboration for quality and efficiency.
