This is what BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2018 had to offer.
Ukraine Forum - open to organic
Ukraine has successfully been presented at BIOFACH in the recent years. The Ukrainian organic sector is growing steadily year-by-year. Now it’s time to show that Ukraine is innovative and moving along with the world, introducing new organic technologies and achievements. This year at the Ukrainian Forum the participants will learn more about organic farming, discover latest organic trends, best practices and unique approaches to the production and processing of organic products implemented by Ukrainian organic operators. Ukraine can impress not only with the land areas and product volumes but also as a producer of final products with added value. The Forum has already become a traditional international platform to exchange ideas, market trends and better discover #OrganicInUkraine.
