Our goal

The ORGANIKA association was established in 2013 by the leading companies in the sector of Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFPs) and Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs). The purpose of the association is to improve cooperation among stakeholders in this sector and further develop the sector by promoting Kosovo products in foreign export markets, and also through lobbying activities. Moreover, the ORGANIKA association aims to support all its members in becoming certified with organic standards within the next 5-7 years, and achieve that certified organic products become the majority of exports.

Our vision

The development of the NWFP and MAP sector through sustainable use of NWFPs, the promotion of MAP cultivation, and increasing collection, processing and exporting capacities.
