The article aims to determine the state of development of infrastructure ensuring the quality of agrifood products in the Republic of Moldova through analysis and deduction of the related elements - regulatory basis, inputs, post-harvest network, quality of exported products; the involved working methods are present through the analysis of genesis of quality infrastructure, scientific abstraction of the institutional framework, logarithm of agrifood exports' unit value as well as quantitative analysis by exposing numerical values for each structural component. Study results highlight a quality infrastructure in formation, both legislative and institutional, also we witness a continuous connection to international/regional standards under the conditions of some degrading but still qualitative land resources, of more efficient plant varieties, with some minor exceptions. Concluding, we understand that both post-harvest network, as well as private investment in modern equipment of the agrifood industry continue to be the major challenges of the chain; as for the quality of products exported to the European Union/Commonwealth of Independent States, their highest index proved to be that for nuts, fruit and vegetable juices and sugar, in relation to the EU; sunflower oil, sugar, dairy products and natural honey in relation to the CIS.
