Ukrainian National Pavilion at BioFach 2018

(14.02.2018) 

The biggest international organic trade fair BioFach 2018 in Nuremberg (Germany) took place on February 14-17, 2018 where visitors and exhibitors had a unique opportunity to establish new contacts, explore new business opportunities and get more acquainted with the rapidly growing organic sector of Ukraine and the whole word.

In 2018 the Ukrainian National Pavilion celebrated its fifth anniversary at the international organic trade fair Biofach. The pavilion united people who are interested in the development of the organic sector in Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian products at international markets. This year Ukrainian exhibiting companies were situated at a new pavilion 4A on 130 sq.m.

For four years of successful presentation of national organic sector at BioFach 2014-2017 Ukrainian National Pavilion increasingly sparked general interest with its potential to meet much of the growing global demand for organic products. That proved notable increase of number of exhibitors at the trade fair from 9 in 2014 to 20 in 2018.

20 companies presented Ukraine at BioFach 2018 and offered a range of organic products, including cereals, oil bearing crops, legumes, groats/flakes, berries, oils and seeds. This year number of processing companies and producers of oil and berries increased that showed excellent pre-conditions for a further growth of organic production in Ukraine. One of the exhibitors presented its professional services in organic sector – internationally accredited and recognised certification body Organic Standard.

Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine open to Organic", which already became traditional, was organised within the framework of BioFach 2018 where representatives of the business and authorities took part. The Forum gathered together over 90 participants from 15 countries, such as Ukraine, Switzerland, Italy, United States, Canada, Argentina, Netherlands, Turkey, Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Poland, United Kingdom, and Russia.

For five years the Ukrainian National Pavilion is 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 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). And for the last two years the Pavilion has also been co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) through the German-Ukrainian cooperation project "Advice to Ukraine on agricultural trade issues under the deep and comprehensive Free-Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between the EU and Ukraine", implemented by AFC/IAK, and Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) funded by the U.S. government via the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
