Ukraine’s organic market continues to prosper – despite the current political and economic crisis

Ukraine is famous for its potential for organic farming. Notwithstanding the difficult political and economic situation, the market continues to develop rapidly. During 2014, organic exports have increased greatly. At BIOFACH 2015 in Nuremberg, Germany, from February 11 to 14, we offer you an interesting opportunity to become acquainted with the rapidly growing organic sector of Ukraine and explore new business opportunities.
