About the project

The goal of the Organic Market Development in Ukraine 2012 – 2016, Phase II Project is to foster the growth of small and medium enterprises in the Ukrainian organic food sector by developing organic and regional food supply chains. The focus will be on both national and international markets and the approach is demand driven.
The project aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the country’s organic sector by:

  1. Increasing the quality and volume of selected organic arable crops from small and medium-sized farms for export;
  2. Increasing the quality and volume of organic dairy products from small and medium-sized farms for the domestic market;
  3. Developing a trademark for regional food products from the Carpathians;
  4. Improving commercial organic services;
  5. Fostering a conducive environment for the further development of the organic sector.

The project is funded by the Swiss Confederation through the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and is being implemented by the Swiss Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) in cooperation with sector stakeholders in Ukraine and the Ukrainian Ministry of Agricultural Policy and Food.
