Since last year, Canadian pork [in particular, frozen pork shoulder, ham, and their cuts] have been supplied to Ukraine. In January-April, these parts of meat were imported to Ukraine at $1.77-2 kg, in May – at $1.68 kg, and last month their customs value fluctuated between $1.66 kg and 1.68 kg. Even more expensive pork was supplied from Canada [in May and June] – at $2.39 kg and $2.59 kg," the association&#39;s analytical department added. As UNIAN reported earlier, the price of pork may rise by 10% before the end of 2018, according to experts.
