A forum for producers of organic products will take place in the Odessa region

Producers, traders and representatives of public associations are invited to participate in the X regional forum "Organic Ukraine". It will be held on February 21 at the Odessa Regional State Administration.

"Over the past few decades, the area of land for organic has increased fourfold. Stable growth of 15-20% is predicted further. This is a great prospect of the development of rural areas! By the number of organic producers, the Odessa region is currently among the TOP-3 in Ukraine. So, we want to gather a lot of useful information for the forum. We exchange experience, listen to our success stories, discuss the latest trends and problems, "said Svetlana Shatalova, deputy chairman of the Odessa regional state administration.

She also added that the Odessa region produces mostly environmentally friendly grains, legumes and oilseeds. To a lesser extent, honey, berries and livestock products. Therefore, the forum will also be useful to those who are only planning to engage in organic production. Its organizers are NGO Organic Ukraine, Organic Expert Consulting Ltd and Odessa Regional State Administration.
