Oleksandr Oleksandrovych Shpyta, the Head of the Main Department of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection in Zhytomyr region expressed gratitude to Petro Volodymyrovych Rud for the implementation of organic goods production technologies and for the longstanding adherence to the Ukrainian and international quality standards in production of dairy products.
Issues of effective cooperation and standards essential for entry of the enterprise into foreign markets were discussed at the meeting: every company entering the world trade commonwealth should adhere to these standards.
External economic activity is more complex than internal one, as it requires considering national, religious, cultural and ethnic peculiarities and specifics of the countries whose markets a company plans to enter. In the foreign markets companies face a range of factors which are also more numerous, complex and interrelated than those in the domestic market.
Companies aiming to conquer the international market should be aware of significant investments, efforts and resources required for such activity: organizational, as well as personnel, financial and commercial. Furthermore, neither company is able to start business abroad without reaching the required minimum level of control, production and quality management systems. For this purpose the company has to estimate its readiness to enter the foreign markets and to adapt its products to the international requirements and standards, to investigate and define the accessibility of the foreign market, to specify possible factors of competitiveness in the international market, to analyse general risks to safe external economic cooperation with foreign contractors.
Petro Rud, Chairman of the Board of "Zhytomyr Butter Plant" JSC, received the Order of Prince Yaroslav the Wise, 5th class, for a significant personal contribution to state-building, socio-economic, cultural and educational development of Ukraine, significant working achievements, and high professionalism.
