Ukraine is a lower-middle income country in Eastern Europe. Its economy is rebounding after the political and economic turmoil of recent years. Ukraine’s imports of agricultural products grew over eight percent in the first ten months of 2019. As a major agricultural producer and exporter, Ukraine also possesses a large food-processing industry. The majority of agricultural import growth in the near future is likely to concentrate in food ingredients. Economic growth in Retail, Hotel, Restaurant and Catering sectors is opening multiple niche opportunities for U.S. higher value-added products. Trends for Western-style food are profound and can spell more imports in the near future.
