Ukrainian Grain Association
The Ukrainian Grain Association (UGA) is an association of producers, processors and exporters of grain, which annually exports about 90% of Ukrainian grain products. The main purpose of UGA is to promote the formation and development of the national grain market in Ukraine, as well as the creation of the necessary organizational, economic, legal and social conditions in the interests of the development of economic entities in the grain market in Ukraine. Therefore, UGA is actively working to establish an effective dialogue between government and business in the agricultural sector to achieve a balance of interests in order to create comfortable conditions for doing business in the agricultural sector. UGA also works closely with such international organizations as FAO, EBRD, IGC, COCERAL, IGTC, GAFTA, IFC and builds partnerships with national agricultural associations of other countries to acquire and adapt the best international experience and create favourable conditions for Ukrainian grain in the world market.

The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) is a Brussels-based non-profit organisation established in 1997. We bring together producers of biodiesel (FAME and HVO) in Europe, gathering 34 members across 21 Member-States representing 75% of European biodiesel output. We represent biodiesel producers using all feedstocks: food/feed crops, waste, residues, and other innovative biogenic materials.

The EBB promotes European biodiesel use and is committed to international standards for sustainability in GHG emissions and feedstock supply.
