Egg imports from Ukraine approved

Just in time for the High Holy Day season, in which the country partakes in numerous family feasts, the Agriculture Ministry has approved Ukraine as an additional import source for eggs.

Although Israel produces the majority of the roughly 2 billion eggs consumed here annually, egg imports each year amount to about 100 million, the ministry said.

During the times of year when demand exceeds supply, particularly around Rosh Hashana and Passover, the Agriculture Ministry – with the recommendation of the Poultry Council – approves egg imports from Europe in order to prevent a market shortage.
