Reliable organic supplier: Ukrainian National Pavilion as a good tradition of BioFach

Ukrainian National Pavilion at BioFach 2017

(18.02.2017) 

At the biggest international trade fair Biofach-2017 in Nuremberg (Germany), which took place on 15-18 February, 2017 everyone had a unique opportunity to get more acquainted with the rapidly growing organic sector of Ukraine and explore new business opportunities.

For the forth time, after the successful presence at BioFach during 2014-2016, where the Ukrainian National Pavilions sparked much general interest with its potential to meet much of the growing global demand for organic products, Ukraine again had its own National Pavilion at Biofach-2017 (Hall 5, booth 5-255).

Ukrainian National Pavilion united people who were interested in the development of the organic sector in Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian products to international markets.

Fifteen companies presented Ukraine at the BioFach 2017 and offered a range of organic products, including cereals, oil crops, pulses, groats/flakes, wild/cultivated berries, seed oils and seeds. This range of products provided excellent pre-conditions for a further growth of organic production in Ukraine. In addition two companies presented their professional services in organic sector – internationally accredited and recognised certification body Organic Standard and professional organic cargo handling&delivery company Unimar Logistics.

Twelve companies were presented with their own stands at the Ukrainian National Pavilion and five – at the reception.

The Forum 2017: Ukraine – Your organic sourcing Partner was organised in the frame of BioFach 2017 as well.

The Ukrainian National Pavilion was organized by the Consortium of three Ukrainian key organic stakeholders: QueS Organic Consultancy Body ; Organic Standard Certification Body; Environmental NGO Information Center “Green Dossier” .

Since 2014 the Ukrainian Pavilion has been supported by the Swiss-Ukrainian cooperation project “Organic Market Development in Ukraine”, funded by the Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs SECO and implemented by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL (www.ukraine.fibl.org ).

This year, the pavilion was also co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) through the two German-Ukrainian cooperation projects “Advice to Ukraine on agricultural trade issues under the deep and comprehensive Free-Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between the EU and Ukraine” and “German-Ukrainian co-operation in the field of organic agriculture”, both implemented by AFC/IAK (www.afci.de / www.iakleipzig.de ). Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) funded by the U.S. government via the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) also supported the exhibition in 2017 (www.wnisef.org )

The Ukrainian National Pavilion at BioFach 2017 was organised under support of Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
