She said there are only there apiaries, 34 farms and seven processing enterprises have licenses for producing organic foods.
Darbinyan said that in addition to Eco or Bio markings, the label must contain information about the company from which the license has been received. She said in Armenia only ECOGLOBE provides such licenses.
She also said that the government should tighten grip upon the matter.
