The last few years were difficult for the meat industry in Ukraine, since the closure of the Russian market for domestic livestock producers; wich has led to a significant reduction in exports and oversupply on the domestic market.

As of September 2018, beef production amounted to 129.6 thousand tons, which is 3.7% less than in the same period last year. Demand for products over the last 2 years has been decreasing due to the decrease in population due to the annexation of the Crimea and hostilities in the eastern part of the country. Also, the high cost of beef production and a low consumption culture have put pressure on production and as a result - at prices. At the same time, due to the threat of nodular dermatitis, the cattle population is cut out.

Production of pork in recent years shows a tendency to decrease. This tendency is the result of the decline in production and deterioration of the epizootic situation in the country (AFS outbreaks). Also, in 2018 there is a significant increase in imports - 23.4 thsd USD, which is almost 3 times as much as imports for the entire 2017 year.
