The paper analyzes the tendencies of meat and meat products market development in Ukraine and the major tendencies of foreign economic activity at domestic export-oriented agrarian enterprises in order to define their opportunities to sale meat products at both internal and external markets and find out the organizational aspects of their readiness to integrate to European markets. Dynamics of meat products export by years and countries is analyzed on the basis of official statistical data. Specific attention is paid to the interests of European market and mechanisms of domestic poultry adaptation to the requirements of European economic space. The paper reveals that not all agricultural enterprises can be the perspective exporters at meat products market, only large agricultural enterprises, which have opportunities for accumulation of all production factors and forming of infrastructural environment to export meat products. In order to expand the sales markets and to enter new foreign markets the agrarian enterprises’ production has to have certain features, like high production profitability (as far as production entry into the foreign market requires significant expenditures), high quality of production, its correspondence to the standards of a country bound to be an importer of the production. Moreover, enterprises have to permanently work at examining of situation at external market in order to react fast to legislative changes and changes in market conditions. As far as foreign economic policy of our country is directed at European integration and promotion of Ukrainian producers’ goods at EU countries’ market the growth of the level of meat products export capacity can be achieved due to renovation and modernization of production processes and adjusting of quality standards to the requirements of the country-importer of a certain production type. Agrarian sector production is now the basis of the commodity structure of Ukrainian export. Strengthening of foreign economic relations will contribute to expansion of export capacity of domestic agrarian enterprises, modernization of processing sphere and export of qualitative production with high value.
