Benefit from our contacts to Ukraine

IMPOrt opportunities despite war

The war in Ukraine is affecting agricultural businesses on the ground with full force. Of course, IPD supports its partner companies in these difficult times - especially those that can continue to produce and whose products are not needed or in demand on the Ukrainian domestic market. 

By importing from Ukraine, you are not only securing excellent products, but also helping to stabilise the hard-hit Ukrainian economy.  

The IPD-vetted suppliers are particularly convincing on account of their rich and varied range of fresh fruit and vegetables and natural ingredients. Especially the abundant offerings of berries, whether fresh, dried, or frozen, are internationally without equal. In the timber sector, Ukraine enjoys the advantage of its centuries-old tradition in wood processing and, naturally, of its vast wood resources. IPD assists exporters in their certification of origin, in order that they can meet the EUTR requirements.

We offer you the opportunity to meet Ukrainian suppliers of fresh produve and natural ingredients through various activities, such as our virtual B2B events or European trade fairs.


  • Short transport routes
  • Free trade agreements with the EU
  • Free contact mediation to tried-and-tested suppliers
