National Pavilion of Ukraine at the international organic trade fair BioFach 2016

Ukrainian country pavillion 2016

(

The fertile black soils of Ukraine are famous and provide perfect conditions for organic farming. At BioFach 2016 in Nuremberg (Germany) February 10-13, 2016 we offered everyone an interesting opportunity of getting more acquainted with the rapidly growing organic sector of Ukraine and explore new business opportunities.

For the third time, after the successful presence at BioFach 2014 and BioFach 2015, where the National Pavilions of Ukraine sparked much general interest with its potential to meet much of the growing global demand for organic products, Ukraine again had an own country pavilion at BioFach 2016.

The coordination of the Ukraine country pavilion was a joint effort of a consortium involving key Ukrainian organic stakeholders: QueS, consultancy body,Information Center "Green Dossier" and Organic Standard, certification body, supported by Swiss-Ukrainian Organic Market Development in Ukraine Project, funded by the Swiss Confederation through the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and with support of the EU Project "Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood" (EaP-GREEN), implemented by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), OECD, UNECE, UNIDO, State Enterprise National Research and Information Center for Monitoring International Commodity Markets (DZI).

11 Ukrainian companies presented Ukraine at BioFach 2016 and offered a range of organic products including: cereals, oil crops, pulses, sunflower seeds and oil, wild and cultivated berries. This range of produce provides excellent pre-conditions for a further increase of organic production – up in Ukraine. In addition at the Ukrainian country pavilion certification services was presented by the 1st and the only Ukrainian-owned and international accredited and recognised certification body "Organic Standard".
