Language: Russian/German/English simultaneous translation
The national law on Organic Production, which became effective on 1 January, 2022, has become an important landmark in the development of the Russian organic farming. The law governs the production of organic products, their certification and labeling as well as the activity of the corresponding competent authorities and is a crucial step on the way of tapping into the high-potential national and global organic market.
Panel discussion with the key experts on the development of organic market in Russia and the world is aimed at demonstrating the prospects of the development of organic production from the point of view of politics, professional associations and individual entrepreneurs. The key questions to be discussed:
