The organic market has currently the best quality management system of the whole food market, but fraud is still an issue. The Anti Fraud Initiative (AFI) in collaboration with IFOAM invites for the workshop “Improving Integrity of Organic Supply Chains” in Odesa (Ukraine) on 21-22 September 2017.
Representatives from the Ukrainian Ministry of Agriculture and the relevant competent authorities among others the new head of the Organic Unit, Nicolas Verlet, will participate as well as H. van Boxem and Miles McEvoy, who is responsible for organic imports in the US at the USDA.
The Anti Fraud Initiative (AFI) aims to improve cross border communication among inspection and certification bodies, trade companies, label organisations and authorities to strenghten organic integrity.
