The European Commission gave Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) the green light on Wednesday to export processed eggs to the European Union (EU) member states.

Mirko Sarovic, BiH's minister of foreign trade and economic relations, described the decision made by the European Commission's Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed as a success for his country, local media reported.

Sarovic said that the permission was received after several months of preparation, and that until now, no products containing eggs could be exported to the EU from BiH.

"This is a significant success as the eggs will increase the competitiveness of the fowl sector and the overall production, not only regarding eggs but also the entire food industry," Sarovic said.

According to Sarovic, composite products, such as pasta and pastry, can now be exported smoothly to the EU.

After obtaining approval for the export of processed eggs, BiH plans to submit a request later this year for a license to export raw eggs. The condition there is to pass a test on whether they are infected with salmonella.
