The full-scale invasion became a big challenge for organic producers in Ukraine: not few of the farms were for some weeks under Russian occupation, and some are still under Russian occupation today.

Landmines, fuel shortages, crop theft, and a reduced number of workers are just some of the problems organic farms have faced.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, the project "German-Ukrainian Cooperation in Organic Agriculture" actively supports the organic sector in Ukraine and admires courage and dedication of Ukrainian producers. This is what inspired creation of the film, which would show the new reality of the organic sector of Ukraine and reopen it for the international community. Ivan Tomenko (Agrofirma "Pole" LLC), Svitlana Koratsyuba ("Agro-Lux" Farming Company) and Volodymyr Metelskyi (Private agricultural enterprise named after Shevchenko) shared their stories for the film. Since February 24, these enterprises have gone their own way and, despite anything, did not stop their work, as well as many other organic producers throughout Ukraine.

The film was presented as part of the event "Organic agriculture in Ukraine 5 months after the start of the war - status quo and prospects" on July 27 during the international exhibition "BIOFACH" in Nuremberg, Germany. The company SvoeKino from Ukraine produced this film in July on behalf of the Project in Ukraine. To access hte video on Youtube click thefollowing picture below:
