The aim is to develop authenticity analyses for plant species / raw material / products important for trade in Baltic countries taking into account also the export potential and needs of the emerging markets of NTFP in South East Asia and China.

Nordic/Baltic NTFP raw materials and products are regarded to be safe, pure and reliable. The demand for high quality NTFP is growing. Unfortunately, due to the global competition fake NTFP can be found on the market as well. In order to help the real and reliable NTFP business to grow it is important to show proofs of authentic raw materials/products.

There is a need for the development of more accurate methods for confirming the authenticity of biological raw material/products, especially for wild plant material. Methods are needed for the markets to be able to provide verification of authenticity of the plant material.
