We pay attention to quality

Estonia

Open economy

Estonia’s export of goods and services exceeds 85% of our GDP. The major exports are electrical machinery and equipment, wood and wood products, and mineral products. Main export destinations are Sweden, Finland, and Latvia.

4th best air quality

According to WHO Estonia holds the 4th place in urban air quality in the world.

Plenty of space

Population density in Estonia is 30.3 people per km2. That is almost four times less than EU’s average – 116.7 people per km2 –, making Estonia the third sparsely populated country in EU.

Great minds

Estonians understand technology: Skype revolutionized communication, TransferWise changed international money transfers, GrabCAD helps to build products faster and Starship robots reframe local delivery.

In Estonia, organic land area has expanded almost threefold over the last ten years.

The number of processing and marketing enterprises has also grown every year, as have sales of organic food. Healthiness is given as the main reason why Estonian consumers buy organic food.

More than two thirds of organic farmers in Estonia (1151) keep animals and, despite the small number of processing possibilities, the number of organic animals (except for dairy cows) has increased significantly in the last five years. Foremost are organically raised sheep (54,470 animals in 2015, 50,710 converted) and cattle (41,744 animals in 2015, 37,831 converted).

In the last five years, the number of beef cattle has more than doubled and the number of sheep has grown by ca 1/5.

It is remarkable that 1/2 of all sheep in Estonia are organic. There were 350 organic farms who kept sheep and 154 farms with more than 100 sheep in 2015. The largest numbers of organic sheep were kept in Valga County, followed by Saare and Põlva Counties. The largest flock had 3,247 sheep (in Valga County).


The plan foresees for 2020 that, e.g., the area of organic land will increase to 180,000 ha, 20% of Estonians will be regular consumers of organic food, 30% of childcare institutions will offer organic food, the proportion of Estonian organic plant production products labelled as organic will be 90%, the proportion of Estonian organic animal production products labelled as

organic will be 50%, and the value of organic products processed in Estonia, as well as Estonian products exported or sold to other EU countries, will triple. One of the goals has already been met – 96% of Estonian organic plant production products were sold as organic in 2015.
