This is what VIVANESS and BIOFACH 2019 had to offer.
Organic agriculture in Russia in the new framework conditions
- Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation
- “German-Russian agrarian-political dialogue”
- National Organic Union of the Russian Federation
In 2018 the Organic production law was passed in Russia, and will take effect on January 1, 2020. Per the law, products may be termed organic if they are produced in accordance with the national organic standard. How will the law affect the development of the organic sector in Russia? Will it have an effect on the growth of export of Russian organic produce to other markets? How will the certification system be implemented and will international organic certificates be recognized in Russia? How will the law affect the import of organic goods? Does the Russian Federation have plans of reaching an organic equivalency agreement with the EU? These and other questions will be discussed by Russian and international experts during the panel discussion “Organic agriculture in Russia in the new framework conditions”.
