PROGRAIN: How organic investment pays off

United Nations Environment Programme (2018-01-04)

Established in 2012, the PROGRAIN company once only bought and traded grains and oleaginous plants, seeds and seeding material as well as plant protection products and fertilizers. Yet with low farmland prices and high market premiums, Moldova also offers fertile ground for organic agriculture. In 2014, therefore, driven by increasing demand for natural and organic products, PROGRAIN ORGANIC was founded. The company received a foot-up with financial support as part of a Dutch Government programme in favour of Dutch-Moldovan joint companies.
