The certification entitles the company to take full advantage of participation in the Russian and European markets and to place the Euro-leaf and Organic labels on the product package. The company has to verify its status on a biannual basis’, states Tatyana Grishchenko, Head of Government Relations Department, EkoNiva-APK Holding, who also coordinates the organic project.

EKONIVA ORGANIC dairy produce is sold not only at the company’s own brand shops, but also at the federal chain stores such as Globus, O’KEY, Auchan, Lenta and e-marketplaces – Ozon, Sbermarket and others. There is also a growing demand for organic milk from HoReCa sector. Currently, EkoNiva is considering the possibility of producing the UHT organic milk with a fat content of 3.2%.
