After the implementation of the Ukrainian law on organic farming, the regional consumer protection authorities will be responsible for numerous new tasks. This includes the control of the organic inspection bodies, the monitoring of the correct labeling of the products in the food retail trade as well as random checks of the organically certified farms and processors. In preparation for these tasks, the Ukrainian Ministry of Economy (MinEcon) and the Ukrainian Consumer Protection Authority (SSUFSCP) decided to carry out a model project and selected the responsible regional consumer protection authority in Poltava for this. The model project was inspired by the “German-Ukrainian Cooperation in Organic Agriculture (COA)” project. The model project is being implemented jointly by the Consumer Protection Authority in Poltava and COA. The COA project is financed by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL).
