Ukraine: organic production is developing faster than in the world — Ministry of Agrarian Policy

In Ukraine, the production of organic agricultural products increased in 5.4 times compared with the figures in Europe, and almost up 5 times compared with the global figures. At the same time, grains covered nearly 45.4% of the general planted areas under Ukrainian organic crops, declared the interim Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, Olga Trofimtseva on July 2.

She noted that Ukraine exports almost all domestically produced organic agricultural products.

Ukrainian companies-producers are successfully using the state support programs, which assist in their development. To date, the companies export 70% of organic products, and supply 30% of the volumes on the domestic market, said O.Trofimtseva.
