The Moldova Organic Value Chain Alliance was founded in 2015 by a small group of innovative
agricultural leaders in Moldova who shared a passion for organic farming. This small group believed then – and continue to believe – that organic farming practices represent the best opportunity for Moldovan agriculture. Compared to convention farming which mistreats and diminishes the soil over time, organic farming practices improve the soil and preserve the land for future generations. Organic foods taste better and are more healthful for consumers and better-for-you organic farming reduces pollution, conserves water, reduces soil erosion, increases soil fertility, and uses less energy. Not using synthetic pesticides also benefits the farmers’ neighbors and nearby wildlife.
