It is planning to increase wine exports to the EU in the Odesa region

A project has been launched in Odesa Oblast, which will control the name and origin of wine according to EU standards. Consequently, the competitiveness of these products in the foreign market will grow. This was announced by Ivan Petriv, Head of the Agrarian Policy Department of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

"Planned to introduce quality control: from the bush to the finished product. Also, implementation of the project will allow the export of wine to be identified, which is produced in the territory of the Odessa region. As an integral part of the association with the EU, the quality and control of the origin of food products remain. In particular, by the end of this year, the inventory of vineyards will be completed. Such an approach will become the basis for effective protection of the rights of producers in our region, "Ivan Petriv emphasized.

In addition, the leadership of the Odessa Regional State Administration intensifies cooperation with Chinese counterparts. Ivan Pyotr, Head of the Agricultural Policy Department of the Regional State Administration, said that "the general import of wines to the PRC is constantly increasing, which opens up new prospects for producers of the region, provided the quality of the products is high".

As previously reported, the EU project "Support for the development of the system of geographical indications in Ukraine" is being implemented for wines, agricultural and food products. His goal is to search and establish geographic indications that will reflect the unique traditions, cultural heritage and history of Ukraine. This reflects the "place-product" link and allows producers in a particular geographic area to require indication of where the product originates.

Recall that in the Odessa region grapes are grown by 179 business entities of different forms of ownership. At present, 1669 individual plots have been submitted to the vineyard cadastre indicating their geodetic coordinates. The list consists of 40 denominations of technical varieties, 56 tableware and four rootstocks.
