Regional Center Novi Sad presented great achievements this year. More than 260 000 tons of soybeans in the region (Serbia, Croatia and Romania) are certified according to Donau Soja & Europe soya standards, while more than 140 000 tones are exported. More than 39 companies are Donau Soja & Europe Soya certified and more than 60 cooperatives are in the group certification system. This is a huge success for SEE region, which enabled the placement of certified soybeans in the most demanding Western and Northern European markets.

As part of a five-year strategic partnership, we would like to thank the Austrian Development Agency who supports the project „Building sustainable, inclusive and well-functioning value chains for non-GM soya and organic soya in Moldova, Ukraine, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina”.
