The Government of Ukraine adopted new labeling requirements for country of origin or place of origin for selected food products on April 1, 2021. These new requirements cover beef, pork and poultry products, honey, and olive oil and will go into effect on May 18, 2024. The regulation is adopted to fulfill Ukraine’s obligations under its Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area Agreement with the European Union. These new requirements apply to both domestically produced and imported products and demand detailed monitoring and transfer of information about the food products’ country/countries of origin or place of origin throughout the entire production and sales cycle so that this information can be stated on the product label.
