FIRST ORGANIC WINES



National.

Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management Ljupco Dimovski visited Saturday Grkov winery to taste the first organically produced wines in Macedonia.

This confirms that the Government passed the right decision to propose a bill stipulating organic agricultural production, stated Dimovski after visiting the winery.

The bill, which is being reviewed in the parliament, promotes the perspective of organic production, which offers a wide range of opportunities to farmers - much easier sale at foreign markets, better quality and lower price.

The Ministry together with manufacturers and tradesmen will launch activities to promote organic products to consumers, the Minister said.

Macedonia is the first country in the region which in early 2010 will enact a new law on organic agricultural production, fully harmonized with EU's legislation. The bill is expected to be adopted by the end of November. The country is also a leader in terms of organic production development and financial support.

Established in 2004, Grkov winery merchandises its products only in Macedonia in specialised shops for organic food. It is located on the foot of Mount Kozuf (26 km away from Kavadarci).
