Ukraine

Organic products thanks to fertile soil

The Ukraine is among the world’s largest agricultural producers with over 70 percent of its area used for agriculture. 56 percent of the land consists of black-earth soil, the richest and most fertile soil on earth. This nutrient-laden base together with the favourable conditions are the best prerequisites for organic farming - and indeed the range of organic products in the Ukraine is increasing year on year.

This enables Ukrainian producers to offer the market a wide variety of natural products in organic quality for the food industry. The range of dried and frozen berries is especially impressive, but there are also other organically produced goods with high export quality, including sustainably harvested walnuts, dried wild herbs and various types of high-grade honey.
Additionally, Ukrainian farmers offer an extensive range of products in the fruits and vegetables sector. The export of fresh berries in particular is now 17 times what it was four years ago (FAO).

In the long-term, the expansion of organic agriculture will contribute to sustainable economic development and enable the Ukraine to increase exports to the EU. Reduced trade barriers form the basis for this: the DCFTA (Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement) with the EU has been in place since 2016 and from 2017 the EU also granted the Ukraine extended zero tariff quotas on several agricultural products.

The IPD currently identifies reliable suppliers for high-quality products from the Ukraine.
