In March Ukraine imported 9,294 t of pork, which is 30% lower than in the previous month. It is also less than imports in March 2012, which amounted to 11,833 tons, reported the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club.

Totally, in the first quarter of 2013 pork imports is 27.7% higher than the last year, but the current year demonstrates a clear downward trend. This was promoted by the enhanced quality control of imported meat, and a temporary ban for imports of Brazilian pork from March 20, 2013.

Pork exports in March totaled 255 t, which is much higher than “tiny” export volumes in February, which amounted to 57 t. However, exports in March are 8 times lower, comparing to 2149 tons in the previous year. This indicates that domestic pork producers, in the first turn, focus on matching the needs of the domestic market.
