The Ministry of Economy has no data on the exhaustion of annual quotas for mutton, beef and pork, as it has no access to the market.

EU export quotas are set for 36 product groups.

Staple grains export shipment from Ukraine has made up 33.41 mln t since the start of the 2020/21 season. As of Mar. 15, agricultural commodities shipment dropped by 9.98 mln t or 23% from the prior year's comparative period.
