On 23 September 2021, the European Parliament, European Council and European Commission launched the annual EU Organic Day on 23 September. This is a part of the Action Plan for the development of organic production in the EU, adopted by the European Commission on 25 March 2021, to increase the consumption of organic products, expand organic production, improve the sustainability of agriculture and contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the EU Strategy “From Farm to Fork” and the EU Biodiversity Strategy.
Aiming at European integration, implementation of the European Green Deal in Ukraine, raising awareness about the organic products and promoting the key role of organic agriculture in the transition to sustainable production and consumption, Ukraine supports the initiative of the European Union.
