Switzerland continues providing humanitarian aid to dairy producers in affected regions – Kharkiv oblast is in focus

published 08 November 2022 13:46

Phase 1 of the Swiss humanitarian project, which has provided aid to 233 dairy farms in Chernihiv, Kyiv, and Sumy oblasts, is coming to an end. Thus, 155 dairy farms have already received the necessary hygiene products for milk production, the other 78 farms will receive the aid in November.

The project is implemented at the request of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine in cooperation with the Association of Milk Producers, International Charitable Foundation #SaveUA, and the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection under the coordination of the Embassy of Switzerland in Ukraine.

The humanitarian project is aimed at ensuring food security in general and, in particular, through improved access for the Ukrainian population to quality and safe milk and dairy products produced in Ukraine. The important prerequisite for this is ensuring proper milk production and storage hygiene, as well as animal health.

The total budget of the humanitarian project is 2.5 million Swiss francs (about 100 million hryvnias). However, due to the loss of livestock in connection with hostilities and partly due to the refusal of assistance from farms that were able to stand up to all the challenges, there was an opportunity to redirect the remaining funds to the fourth oblast - Kharkiv.

Thus, another 63 farms in Kharkiv oblast will receive support from Switzerland, and the total number of recipients, including farms in Sumy, Chernihiv and Kyiv oblasts, will increase to 296. It is important that in peacetime in 2021, these four oblasts provided more than 30% of milk produced by registered farms and were key suppliers of milk for processing of the highest quality - the "Extra" grade.

For reference: Humanitarian aid will be provided in the form of cleaning and disinfection products for milking equipment, products for pre- and post-dipping, napkins for udder hygiene, gloves, reagents for subclinical mastitis detection, disinfectants for livestock facilities, etc. The majority of products will be purchased from local suppliers to maintain the established relations with agricultural enterprises, resume their production practices and technologies in line with the recommendations of milking equipment manufacturers. 63 farms are on the list of recipient farms in the Kharkiv oblast as of 1 November.
