The company was the first in Ukraine to start selling organic milk in stores. And still for some products we have almost no competitors.

Demand is high, but the company is slowly increasing the volumes, because in organic livestock it is simply impossible to increase capacity quickly.

It produces 15 items of dairy products. Due to the growing demand for organic products, especially dairy products, in Ukraine, the company reduced grain exports and focused on the domestic market; develop the farm and processing, launch new products.

TM works a lot with retail outlets, products are presented in the national networks GoodWine, Silpo, Velyka Kyshenya, Novus, Ashan and others.
