Director of Veterinary Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina Ljubomir Kalaba said that all companies that express their interest in exporting eggs for processing and egg products for which they are found to meet the requirements for export of such products to the EU would be listed to export these products to the EU.
“Currently, no manufacturer has applied for export of egg processing and egg products to the EU,” Kalaba told Federal News Agency.
Bosnia and Herzegovina has been granted a permit for the export of processing eggs to the European Union market on July 10th this year.
At the session of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Animal Feed of the Section of for the Controls and Import Conditions, the European Commission gave a green light for the beginning of exports of this food type from BiH to the EU.
Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of BiH Mirko Šarović points out that, following the approval of the chicken meat export, the export of eggs is another success for Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as for the entire food industry.
“After many months of preparation, we managed to get this permit from the European Commission. This is a significant success as the export of eggs will increase the competitiveness of the poultry sector and overall production, not just eggs, but also the entire food industry.
So far, none of the products containing eggs from Bosnia and Herzegovina could be exported to the EU. This problem has been solved now and producers of composite products such as pasta, bakery products, etc., can now export their products freely to the EU” said Šarović, Federal News Agency reports.
