Biofach 2019, journey to the heart of the organic world

Biofach 2019, journey to the heart of the organic world

2019/11/02 - From February 13 to 16, the German city of Nuremberg will become the heart of the global organic sector with the celebration of the thirtieth edition of Biofach, the most important show dedicated to organic food products, among which is the organic olive oil.

As in previous years, olive oil, wine and vegan food will all have their very own exhibition areas in Biofach known as the "Experience the Worlds of" OLIVE OIL, WINE AND VEGAN. These are part of the Experience & Discover area. As well as product presentations, each ‘’world" offers tastings and a specialised supporting programme. In the worlds of OLIVE OIL and WINE, there are prizes to be won. This is where the most exquisite products receive the MUNDUS VINI BIOFACH, the international organic wine prize or the Olive Oil Award. The MUNDUS VINI BIOFACH is decided following a wine tasting by a jury from Meininger Verlag publishing house before BIOFACH, while the winner of the Olive Oil Award is determined by trade visitors at the venue during the trade fair who do a blind tasting with live voting.

Experience & Discover also includes the special show "Organic right from the start". Following its successful debut in 2018, this special show will go into the next round in 2019 and features numerous initiatives from the fields of organic cultivation of plants and organic animal breeding. This area is located centrally in the Mitte entrance area of the exhibition centre.

Absolutely essential for an all-round view is the thematic focus area Knowledge & Learning. It includes the BIOFACH Congress, which is once again set to welcome around 8,000 participants to about 150 separate presentations, the Generation Future Network Hub, the Fachhandelstreff and the Initiatives & NGOs Network Hub.

Knowhow and learning go perfectly well together at the BIOFACH Congress. Biodiversity, soil fertility, clean water, strong plants, animal welfare or nutrition choices are all topics that will be explored in 2019 as part of the main conference theme. The congress will also explore the connections between agriculture, processing, nutrition and health and the question of the contribution made by the organic system.

For many years now, BIOFACH has had the next generation in the organic sector firmly in its sights with the Generation Future Network Hub. This area includes a job market and a careers centre and features the Organic Food Research Award.

At the next round of BIOFACH, the Fachhandelstreff for specialist retailers will once again offer a space for topics like the joint development of pioneering retail concepts or approaches to meet current challenges.

And because the organic system is always about responsibility, trade visitors can meet representatives of initiatives and NGOs at the aptly named Initiatives & NGOs Network Hub, i.e. non-governmental organisations that make a valuable contribution to the greater good of our society. They will discuss with you issues like the responsible use of natural resources, fair trade, regional focus, animal welfare or biodiversity.
