MOVCA takes to the Global Marketplace !
Moldova’s organic agriculture is on the move in February – all the way to Nürnberg, Germany, as MOVCA – the Moldova Organic Value Chain Alliance – participates in the world’s largest organic foods trade show.
The expected 52.000 visitors will have the chance to sample Moldova’s exceptional and delicious organic cereals, wines fruits, nuts, teas, oils and other products during 2020, to be held February 12-15.
This year marks MOVCA’s third participation in which has created not only opportunity to tell the story of Moldova’s expanding sector, but to cultivate international export markets for a number of products.
MOVCA Executive Director Alexi Micu says by taking part in Moldova’s organic producers and other businesses gained knowledge of this expanding global market and also have built relationships that have resulted in export opportunities for their products.
MOVCA has also helped grow Moldova’s economic brand through its use of the country’s energetic visual image materials in its exhibit and informational materials.
Last year, the Republic of Moldova took an important step forward when it was recognized by the European Commission as a member of the Eastern Partnership, as on par for meeting specific organic marketing standards that are the equivalent of EU requirements.
The primary MOVCA member organizations participating in 2020 are:
- Prograin Organic SRL, which provides inputs, fertilizers, plant protection products, logistics, storage, processing lines and assistance.
- Biantti/Ygrick-Group GT, which makes cold-pressed oils from almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
- eBio/Micu&CO SRL, a grower of wheat, sunflower, corn, spelt, oats, pea, walnuts and plums.
- Equinox/Crama Domnească SRL, Moldova’s only organic wine producer with a growing international reputation for high quality.
In addition, representatives of 70 other MOVCA member organic businesses will participate in for the first time to gain understanding of the international organic marketplace.
