This workshop was  the last in a series of two workshops organised as part of an effort to bring together stakeholders in the organic market data sector from European Union, EU candidate and EFTA countries.

The project is now coming to the last stage and the consortium is engaged in finalising the Code of Practice for the initiation and maintenance of good organic market data collection and publication procedures (OrMaCode), which will be presented at the IFOAM World Congress from 13 – 15 October 2014 in Istanbul.
