Agroecology is one of the pioneers in organic agriculture within Ukraine. The company is committed to organic
farming practices since the 1980s, having developed an own organic management system which aims to preserving and increasing soil fertility as part of its production process. For many years, the company was headed by Semen Antonets; now, his grandson takes over the farm, but building on the sustainable production practices.
The company is certified by Organic Standard according to the Equivalent European Union Organic Production &
Processing Standard and Bio Suisse standards. Agroecology’s production unit involves more than 7’000 hectares of organic arable land in the Shyshaky and Zinkiv district of the Poltava region, in the central part of Ukraine. The company has also 6’000 heads of dairy cattle. The functional integration of animal husbandry (under organic conversion since 2015) and organic arable crops production is key for the company’s success in improving soil fertility as a means to obtain quality harvest of cereals, pulses, and oil crops.
Agroecology targets both the domestic and the export market. To expand its export activities, Agroecology is eager to establish strategic business partnerships to enter new markets.
