As Putin's invasion of Ukraine stretches into its 19th month, the Ukraine's largest salmon processor has succeeded in its strategy to expand its markets and is now exporting products to nearby EU countries.

"We are feeling very proud," Universal Fish Company's (UFC) Marketing Officer Tetyana Krupenko told IntraFish.

As of this month, UFC has begun selling into Romania and Poland "with more countries to come," according to Krupenko. It has also begun producing frozen fish and smoked salmon slices for the Japanese market.
