Ukrainian milk producers will receive UAH 100M from Switzerland.
Switzerland has allocated 2.5M Swiss francs (UAH 100M) to support milk production farms in those regions affected by hostilities. These regions include Chernihiv, Kyiv, and Sumy, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy reported. The project aims to improve Ukrainians’ access to quality dairy products by ensuring production hygiene. Interested milk producers in the affected areas will receive supplies for washing and disinfecting milking equipment, pre- and post-milking udder treatment, hygienic wipes, gloves, testing supplies for detecting hidden forms of mastitis, disinfectants for livestock premises, etc. It is expected that by the project’s end in November 2022, these farms will be able to significantly improve their financial situation through the restoration of product supply chains.
