3 Exciting European Food Industry Trade Fairs in 2020
Join us this year at BIOFACH, Natural Organic Europe, and Free From Functional Foods.
12 - 15 February 2020 (Nuremberg, Germany)
Since its founding in 1990, BIOFACH has established itself as the world’s leading trade fair for organic foods, making it one of the most sought-after meeting places in the industry. With ‘organic’ as its central theme, BIOFACH is a pedestal for quality and conviction, thus pioneering the industry’s responsible use of natural resources.
Over four days, a diverse mix of manufacturers, wholesalers, importers, exporters, and suppliers will be utilising this prestigious platform to introduce visitors to over 11,000 products. With networking on the top of everyone’s agenda, customers, suppliers, and partners meet in person, share their knowledge and expertise, and explore exciting business opportunities. Players gain invaluable insights into the organic sector while meeting countless potential new customers and positioning themselves in the industry’s highly competitive landscape along the way.
BIOFACH's programme comprises numerous presentations and events, including a panel discussion of the opportunities and challenges of EU’s new organic regulations and an experiential journey into the world of vegan foods. As further a highlight, primatologist, environmentalist and UN Messenger of Peace Dr Jane Goodall will deliver the 2020 keynote. The attendance of a wide mix of opinion leaders and respected individuals from politics, associations, and NGOs helps stimulate the dialogue concerning future developments of the organic market. An estimated 1,000 media representatives from around 40 countries are also expected to attend. Visitors and exhibitors thus benefit from media coverage for their brands.
Furthermore, BIOFACH will once again be teaming up with VIVANESS, the international trade fair for natural and organic personal care. Both fairs will be running at Nuremberg’s exhibition centre in parallel to facilitate cross-sector collaborations and increase touchpoints.
