Zero HungerDecent Work and Economic Growth

Poor food hygiene and safety standards are a concern for Ukrainian consumers.

Under a Swiss initiative, food safety regulations for milk have been stepped up and the production of certified organic milk has increased twofold in three years.

I have been dealing with milk and cows for almost 30 years and I thought I knew everything about it. Yet I learned so much thanks to the training! It opened my eyes on issues such as germs and milk acidity. We did not care about these issues before. We used to sell milk right after milking the cows. I know now that it may be dangerous if it isn’t processed first. We have to sterilise milk, pasteurise it, refrigerate it, and more. You know, I have a family. I already have a granddaughter. I am proud to produce healthy, high-quality milk. It is very important for children’s growth. I see it through my granddaughter.

The training has also proved extremely helpful and timely in the development of my activity. Our treatment centre has become a quality reference for over 600 cow-owners in the region and our customers. We start treating milk at 4 a.m. every day. You see, you arrived at 11 a.m. and we already don’t have any milk left! Everyone appreciates our work because they trust our expertise in all stages of milk processing. It does not end there. The training gave me hints to look for more information. I am all the time looking for ways to perfect our working methods so as to offer an ever better quality of milk.

#StandWithUkraine

Since 24th February 2022 Neither my family nor my activities were left untouched by the war. It affected both the economic, social, emotional and psychological aspects of our lives. Today one of our main business issues is to supply our company with fuels at adequate prices. We keep on working as many social and domestic tasks remain relevant both for us and for private milk farms. We do our best to pursue our activities and to remain afloat in the market. Ukraine’s future belongs to us and it is in our hands. Who else would contribute to growing the economy and paying taxes? It is all on us, together with our countrymen who support the collective effort. At our scale we try to provide our milk producers with all possible assistance. All together we work for peace and victory!
