The most influential union of poultry meat producers of EU – European Poultry Club (EPC) in cooperation with Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation (UAC) will organize an annual International poultry producers Congress. EPC based on very successful experience of conducting its first International Congress at Moscow in 2003, this time decided to hold next congress in Kyiv to join the leaders of poultry industry from European and CIS countries. This event should become a ground for a substantial discussion of the representatives who practice progressive methods of poultry keeping and who have achieved excellent results in their activity.

Organizers expect to gather more than 50 the most influential key players of this branch form Ukraine, Russia and all Europe.

Alex Lissitsa the General Director of UAC is sure that during the Congress very important global-level problems, which concern poultry manufacturing will be discussed and will be tried to be solved. “We look forward to new significant agreements to be signed at the Congress and we also expect important decisions concerning Ukrainian poultry-meat export to EU to be reached” he added.

Also Alex Lissitsa mentioned that EPC decided to hold its annual Congress in Ukraine this time, because our country developed much in poultry producing last time and the quantity and quality of Ukrainian poultry meat became very competitive, so that we even debate on expansion for European and World markets. On the other hand, holding the Congress in Kyiv means that organizers believe and recognize Ukrainian achievements and it is a high honor for us.

Note. In the November 2002 the leading European poultry meat and eggs producers decided to establish an umbrella organization for presentation their interests on the international stage. According to this aim European Poultry Club was founded. Another goal of EPC is experience exchange and communication within informal circumstances.
