AbstractOrganic production is an overall system of farm management, food production and its impact on the environment. The challenge for the organic sector is to ensure a steady increase in supply and demand for organic foods and consumer confidence in these products. In recent years, organic foods have been highly preferred by European consumers, who no longer buy processed food products produced by large multinational enterprises that contain large amounts of additives. The aim of the article is to characterize selected European associations promoting organic farming practices, organic food production, organizing: control bodies, authorities, small, medium-sized and large-scale enterprises, research units and consumers in order to identify the research needs of the organic farming sector and provide them with European legislation.
