Abstract

In Romania, the area under organic crops multiplied 13 times between 2000-2016. Presently, the domestic demand is higher than the domestic supply and imports are needed, especially of processed products; at the same time, Romania is exporting organic products to Western countries. The EU high quality schemes include other categories of manufactured food products which are specially registered in the EU-DOOR database; Romania is present with four registered products only. The present paper is analyzing the evolution and dynamics of the organic production and of the food products included in the national and EU high quality schemes in Romania as compared to other EU countries. The upward trend is expected to continue, and the financial support foreseen for the period 2014-2020 will further encourage the development of this sector.
