Organic products market in Kazakhstan exceeds $500 million

The market for organic products in Kazakhstan has been valued at US$500 million by government officials at the Trade Committee of the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs in Kazakhstan. 

Zhibek Azhibayeva, secretary of the Trade Committee told a media briefing on March 12 that the market for environmentally-friendly products is linked to greater areas of land being certified as eco-friendly.


Azhibayeva also said that the Agriculture Ministry of Kazakhstan has drafted a Law on organic farming, which will regulate the issues of agricultural machinery, fertilizer, processing, packaging, and eco-friendly packaging.
       

Aigul Solovyova, a member of Kazakhstan’s Parliament and chairperson of the Coalition Board for Green Economy and G-Global Development, commented, “Environmentally-friendly economic development, with a focus on high-tech farming and increased agricultural productivity, is one of the main principles of ‘green’ growth.

“The national concept of the transition to a green economy as well as a draft law on organic farming creates opportunities for the effective implementation of this principle in Kazakhstan.”
