Organic is becoming increasingly popular in Ukraine

In recent years Ukraine has attracted attention mainly on account of two issues connected with organic agriculture in Germany. First, an increasing proportion of organic fodder in Europe is being covered by imports from Ukraine. And second there are cases of residues and also fraud concerning the big and complex organic trade structures in the south of Ukraine, and they have never been completely cleared up. The end result is a very one-sided and  rather negative image of the country.

Natural cosmetics: ”Quality and company development secure the future”

The first quarter of 2016 the market registered growth of roughly 10 %.

We talked with natural & organic cosmetics expert Elfriede Dambacher about developments, concepts and the future.
