Problems related with trust in made in Romania organic products and inspection services, confusion with traditional/natural/healthy products. solution: - informative campaign related to EU rules for organic production with a clear, distinct and impressive message, training of mass media factors in organic concept, increasing the visibility of Ministry of Agriculture as a key and correct factor in control of the certification bodies activities, campaign for clarification of the difference between the mentioned products and organic products. Continuous formation of the youngest consumers from kindergarten to universities even not related to agriculture.
