WHAT EUROPE WANTS: NATURAL INGREDIENTS

In Europe demand is growing for the use of natural ingredients in food production. Nutritious and vitamin-rich snacks without artificial flavourings are particularly popular amongst health-conscious consumers. Ukrainian products such as dried and frozen berries, nuts and honey meet current demand trends on the European market. Wild herbs as natural flavours as well as high-quality grains for the production of cereals are also sought-after by European food producers.

POPULAR WITH EUROPEANS: FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

More and more European consumers prefer vegetarian or vegan food and are conscious of product sustainability when food shopping. They favour fruit and vegetables which are grown organically. Ukrainian farmers could increase their exports to Europe by creating more organic products. Demand for fresh organic-quality berries in particular has increased in recent years.
