Food & Beverages: Basic Principles of Legal Regulation in Ukraine
Currently, the food industry is one of the fast growing and most competitive sectors of the Ukrainian economy. Having high expertise in the relevant field, Arzinger Law Office presents the book "Food & Beverages: Basic Principles of Legal Regulation in Ukraine" in Ukrainian, Russian, and English. The book gives a general idea about the legal field for the food industry in Ukraine as to 27.10.2014.
Now Ukraine is on the cusp of fundamental changes in the food industry regulation. Due to the ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement by Ukraine on 16 September, 2014, an active harmonization of the Ukrainian legislation regulating the food industry with the EU legislation in particular areas (labelling, customs regulation, phytosanitary measures, standardization, public procurement, antimonopoly regulation etc.) or certain product classes is expected in the near future.
The quality harmonization of Ukrainian laws with the European ones will eventually open up ample possibilities for diversification of product exports to the international market as well as create opportunities for Ukrainian producers’ participation in the EU public procurement.
The book has been written by the team of Arzinger’s Food & Beverages lawyers led by Managing Partner Timur Bondaryev and Partner Lana Sinichkina. The team consists of more than 10 lawyers and patent attorneys having work experience at leading companies in alcohol industry, leading food manufacturing companies, mineral water producers, legal departments of big trading networks. They also have experience og supporting business activity in the hospitality sector and follow up the changes in the food industry legislation. Moreover, the lawyers of Arzinger keep on developing their expertise and work experience regarding the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and actively participate in working out a set of laws of Ukraine and adjusting them to the EU legislation.
