Representatives of more than 100 agricultural companies came to The National Philharmonic in Kiev to get the prestigious awards in various nominations of the «Agrarian Elite of Ukraine Rating 2018». This event is a kind of recognition of national agro producers great achievements, as mentions the editor in chief of The Ukrainian Farmer magazine, Pavlo Korotych. «As we can see, nowadays Ukrainian GDP is basically formed thanks to the agricultural production chain. That’s why we consider that farmers deserve this celebration. It`s our eighth annual event, and everyone can see that there were no «eternal» or «suggested» winners, but only those who truly deserved. The agrarian elite of Ukraine for the nominations is chosen by the lead scientists, top experts and the best farm operators», – the head of the magazine adds.
So «Agrarian Elite of Ukraine» from The Ukrainian Farmer magazine is considered one of the most authoritative ratings in the country.
The winner in the «Infrastructure Development» nomination this year is Grain Alliance. The company has a number of successful projects particularly in increasing elevating capacity to more than 250 thousand tones.
”We believe that «Agrarian Elite of Ukraine» by The Ukrainian Farmer magazine is an important award for our company, because it is selected based on the agrarian society`s opinion. That means that we are recognized not only by our partners and colleagues, but also by our competition. The stakeholders’ opinion is very important to our company and we will do our best to stay among the best. We are grateful to The Ukrainian Farmer magazine`s experts for the award, and our intension is to continue our development and development of those territories where we are working, because the promotion of countrysides infrastructure and restoring of Ukraine as the bread basket of the world are the main goals of Grain Alliance”, said the company CEO Evgeniy Radovenyuk.
Grain Alliance is an Active Member of the European Association “Donau Soja”
On April the 19th, the General Assembly of the participants of the European Danube Soybean Association “Donau Soja”, took place in Vienna, Austria. According to the statement of the association, “Donau Soja” currently has a political support in 15 European countries.
One of the main missions of the Association is to protect producers of organic non-GMO soybeans, promoting their interests on the European markets. Grain Alliance is an active member of the Association. The company remains one of the first in Ukraine to join the Association.
“This season Grain Alliance plans to sow more than 10 thousand hectares of soy. Today there are a lot of questions about the terms of export from Ukraine for soy. Hence it is absolutely natural that our long-standing ties with international agro-associations considerably simplify the arrival of Ukrainian soybeans to European markets. During the meeting, we met with the head of the Association, Matias Kron, and discussed a number of specific cooperation programs. We are ready to become a portal through which domestic Ukrainian soybeans will get to Europe on the most optimal terms both for Ukrainian farmers and for the European end-users”- said Tahir Musayev, Chief Commercial Officer of Grain Alliance.
Establishing direct sales channels will help Ukrainian agribusiness to get a fair price for exporting products abroad. “This is very important during the period of political and economic instability in Ukraine,” say well-known experts in agribusiness. Membership in international associations for Ukrainian agribusiness is a prospect of new ties, work at new markets with new customers. Any association is a concentration of people working in the field, the exchange of contacts with these people and their companies and the opening of new opportunities and potential, – stresses the chairman of the Committee of economists of Ukraine Andriy Novak.
