In Ukraine, the organic production market is at the stadium of being formed. The analysis has revealed that within the last three years a tendency of internal saturation of the market with its own organic production at the expense of the raw material demand from import has been observed. The number of organic farms in Poland has multiple times exceeded the number of analogical farms in Ukraine. In the researched period the number of farms in Ukraine increased 5 times while in Poland-12 times. The market of organic products in Ukraine is in the phase of being shaped. Among the organic products on the national market one may spot such products as: bread, cereal, jams, juices, dried fruits, tea, honey. In Poland, the most popular organic products include meat, poultry and dairy products. The introduction of organic production in Ukraine will support: reconstruction of land fertility and preservation of natural environment; increase of effectiveness and profitability of agricultural production; filling the food market with healthy quality food production; strengthening agricultural production, strengthening export potential of the country; improving the image of Ukraine as producer and exporter of high quality food products; ensuing food safety in Ukraine; bettering the general state of wellbeing within the society.
