Abstract
Ekološka poljoprivreda je u skladu sa samim konceptom održivog razvitka, ono što proizlazi iz takvog vida poljoprivredne proizvodnje jest smanjenje negativnog utjecaja na okoliš. Unatoč bogatim prirodnim resursima i predispozicijama koje Hrvatska ima za ekološku poljoprivredu, kod nas je tržište ekoloških proizvoda još u razvoju, ono broji 2194 ekoloških proizvođača, a registrirano je 50.054,22 ha poljoprivrednog zemljišta koji je pod ekološkom proizvodnjom. Ključni čimbenik za rast tržišta ekoloških proizvoda je uz informiranost potrošača i distribucija ekoloških proizvoda. Tržište ekoloških proizvoda nije organizirano. Cijene proizvoda koji su proizvedeni na ekološki način veće su u odnosu na proizvode koji su proizvedeni na konvencionalan način. Zbog toga se nameće potreba za snažnom i raznolikom promocijom ekološke poljoprivrede i ekoloških proizvoda putem organiziranih i osmišljenih nastupa ekoloških proizvođača na tržištu, kako bi ekološki uzgojene hrana bila sve prisutnija na policama trgovina, te tako pronašla svoje mjesto u mnogim kućanstvima. Veliku bi ulogu trebali odigrati i sami potrošači koji u skladu s navedenim, u trenutku donošenja kupovne odluke uzimaju u obzir sve raspoložive informacije kako bi zadovoljili vlastite potrebe a samim time podupirali male ekološke proizvođače.

Parallel abstract (English)
Organic agriculture is in line with the concept of sustainable development . Croatia maintains a vision to reduce the negative impact on the environment using organic farming . Despite it's rich natural resources and predispositions , Croatia is relatively new in the production of organic produce . The number of ecological/organic producers is currently 2194 with a total of 50,054.22 hectares of agricultural land for organic production. A key factor for the growth of the market of organic products is with consumers and distribution of products . This remains disorganised with room for improvement . Prices for organic produce is higher than that of conventional farmed produce . There is a strong need for diverse promotion of organic agriculture and its produce . This would allow ready available organic produce to reach store shelves and household consumers. A significant role should be played by the consumers themselves who in accordance with the above, at the time of making purchasing decisions take into account all available information in order to satisfy their own needs and thus supported small organic producers.
