Agroindustrial Group Arnika — the biggest producer and exporter of own organic commodities from Ukraine, the second largest organic company in Europe.

We are certified in accordance with international, national and private organic standards and conduct our business in a sustainable and climate mitigated way.

Andriy Pylypchenko

Founder, Owner and CEO
Agroindustrial Group Arnika

Arnika was established in 2000 like a conventional agricultural business with key specialization in soybeans production and breeding. In 2004 we built the first soybean processing plant and established the Scientific research institute.

In 2012 I made a strategic decision to transform the whole company in organic business and implement sustainable agricultural practices on our fields.

Since that time, we reached almost 15 000 hectares of land being certified organic, that made us the second largest organic agriholding in Europe. We provide almost 53% of all soybean export volume from Ukraine to the EU, and are the biggest producer and exporter of corn from Ukraine.

We conduct long-term and favorable partnership with clients from Europe, Asia, Middle East and North America.

Today, we develop our business in such a way that we could generate economic value and simultaneously make a positive environmental and social impact. With our business we strive to contribute to the fair future of all inhabitants of our Planet. We would also like to set an example of a sustainable business, that operates in a large-scale organic agriculture and stays socially and environmentally responsible.

We are in organic, because for us matters, what footprint we leave for next generations. And that stays to be our guiding philosophy.

Why organic sunflower (h/o) oil?
Taste and price

1

Neutral characteristics, so the salad will smell like lettuce, not like oil. In terms of its properties it’s a complete analogue of olive oil, but costs cheaper, thus is affordable for consumers
Usefulness

2

Due to the high content of Omega-9 or oleic acid (80% +), the oil is oxidatively resistant, which significantly reduces the likelihood of carcinogens during frying; the highest content of vitamin E in comparison with other edible oils, which is a natural antioxidant, which helps to strengthen the immune system
Free from chemical substances & contaminations

3

Organic oil is crushed by an expeller (special press) or, more simply, mechanically. This guarantees the complete absence of traces of any harmful chemical components in the product
Efficient usage

4

A higher smoke point (260 degrees versus 170 for conventional sunflower oil) leads to a money saving. This oil type could be efficiently used in industrial scales, at HoReCa and for household needs
Why our organic sunflower (h/o) oil?

We produce

As of 2020/21 the overall organic production of sunflower kernels (h/o) amounts 12 000 tons

We process

We guarantee the highest quality and safety of our end product throughout the whole processing chain

We export

Our international trade offices - in the US and Switzerland - could offer you samples, the most efficient logistic and delivery terms

Thus

We fully control the production process and offer you the full traceability of the value chain
Sunflower oil production process:
In 2004 we launched the soybean processing plant with the capacity of 2 tons/hour of TEP-soya. This product is a complex product which contains 60% bypass protein and 70% bypass starch. It prevents cows’ ketosis and therefore excludes the need to buy supplements. TEP-soya provides a natural ratio of essential amino acids with oil energy, which is expressed in the maximum energy value required for fattening all major farm animals, poultry and fish.
Current capacity of soybean processing plant is 6 tons/hour and our key clients are Ukrainian animal husbandry farms.

We produce a range of other feed components, including sunflower cake and full-fat soya. The latter provides digestibility of protein more than 90%, high absorption of fats, high tocopherol content, excellent flavor qualities.

Andriy Pylypchenko

Head of Arnika Organic North America Inc.

The North American market is the biggest organic market in the world, getting almost 50% share of the organic pie.

Arnika, as one of the largest certified land companies in Europe, can offer this market:
1) homogeneous in quality and large in volume export batches,
2) efficient logistics solutions with full traceability of production and sales.
It should be understood that the US market, although dynamic, is also conservative, so building long-term partnerships is a painstaking and long-term work of teams. We’ve already did a great job, certifying our capacities in FDA and in accordance with NOP.

We are open for cooperation with our partners on a variety of organic products, including sunflower oil (ho), sunflower kernels, corn, soybeans, chickpeas, etc.

Markus Schmid

CEO, Arnika Organic Europe AG

The EU manufacturing industry has a steady growing demand for quality organic products with a full traceability cycle. We are able to provide this to our clients from all over the EU due to our direct connection with production located in Ukraine. This allows us to inform our customers first-hand about the possibilities and
process of cultivation, the results of harvesting and storage, as well as to efficient logistics according to the set conditions and delivery times. The location of our office in Switzerland gives us the advantage of proximity to the end customer, thus better understanding of the market.
