Thanks to the country’s size (the biggest country within Europe with 603.6 thousand km²); geographical location and proximity to international buyers; widespread fertile black soils and diverse climate zones, Ukraine has all the prerequisites to gradually become an important supplier of organic products internationally.

Organic production and export development are among the priorities for Ukraine. In 2021, the Ukrainian Government adopted the National Economic Strategy 2030 which officially set a target for increase of organic land in Ukraine. It is planned that by 2030 Ukrainian organic land will reach 3% of the total area of the Ukrainian agricultural lands (or near 1.3 million hectares). Another goal of the Strategy is to increase exports of organic products up to $1 billion by 2030.

Over the last years, Ukraine has significantly strengthened its position as an exporting country of organic products and became an important supplier of organic products to the foreign markets. Today, Ukraine is the main supplier of organic products to the EU from Europe and #4 in the world.

Main importers of Ukrainian organic food products:

  • Netherlands 29.5 mln USD / 97,400 tons
  • USA 48.5 mln USD / 67,000 tons
  • Germany 27.0 mln USD / 41,600 tons
  • Lithuania 5.8 mln USD / 21,500 tons
  • Austria 15.8 mln USD / 18,600 tons

The majority of organic operators in Ukraine are certified according to the EU organic standard. In addition, Ukrainian organic operators are often certified according to the US National Organic Programme (NOP) and/or Canada Organic Regime (COR), Bio Suisse (Switzerland), Naturland and Bioland (Germany), JAS (Japan), and KRAV (Sweden).
