WHY UKRAINE?

Ukraine is the largest country in Europe with unique climatic conditions, making it possible to grow healthier premium quality fruits and vegetables thanks to the following factors:

  • Lots of sunshine– high latitude assures up to 15 hrs of daylight during vegetation period in the summer. Ukraine has the warmest summer of any other country with such a long day, which is critical for good fruit quality, high sugar content and BRIX;
  • Even more sun – Ukraine is a very dry country and most of its precipitation comes in the winter, thus, there are very few cloudy days helping fruits enjoy more sunshine than anywhere else in Europe;
  • 33% of world’s most fertile black soils are in Ukraine and they assure great natural nutrition for the produce;
  • Greater variation between day and night temperatures than in other European countries, resulting in fuller coloring and deeper taste of fruits;
  • Due to the dry and sunny climate, farmers in Ukraine use less chemicals to protect fruits and vegetables than most other European countries, making our fruits much healthier and cleaner;
  • Ukraine has excellent supply of high quality water for irrigation, contributing to the quality of produce;
  • Most of Ukraine’s orchards are no older than 5-7 years, using the most advanced production technologies;
  • Ukraine has access to deep water ports in the Black Sea and can ship fruits and vegetables nearly anywhere inexpensively;
  • Ukraine has several direct flights every day to Dubai and other cities in the Middle East, making exports of perishable produce such as berries affordable and reliable;
  • Ukraine’s premium horticulture products can compete in price due to lower costs of inputs, energy, labor, and land. And they simply taste better!

 

While Ukraine is already the largest exporter of sunflower oil in the world, third largest wheat exporter and the largest exporter of poultry to the EU, it is just starting its horticultural development and there will be a rapid increase in supplies over the next few years! Thus, the value of the contacts you make during our event will only appreciate with time.
