into organic. The organic trade meets at the organic exhibition from 11–14.2.2015.

Organic is more than a label or certification: organic stands for quality and conviction – for the responsible use of nature’s resources. BIOFACH 2015 in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg is the place where people share their passionate interest in organic food, get to know each other and exchange views, and this for more than 25 years! Join us in a world of organic products and taste. As a visiting professional you can meet organic producers from the international organic market and be inspired by the sector’s latest international trends. BIOFACH 2015 is the event for organic experts and a professional audience. Enter the world of organic food – into organic.

Over the past years, the exhibition duo of BIOFACH and VIVANESS, International Trade Fair for Natural Personal Care, has developed into an impressive highlight for the sector and attracted more than 2,235 exhibitors from 76 countries and 42,445 trade visitors from 135 countries in 2014.

The parallel organic congress, the biggest in the world, attracted 6,550 participants to 104 individual events at the 25th anniversary edition in 2014. The focus topic Organic 3.0 was reflected in numerous congress presentations.

Opinions on BIOFACH 2014

  lessMarkus Arbenz, Executive Director, IFOAM (D)
International patron
“Organic and BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2014 impact! With the Organic 3.0 theme in the 25th year of BIOFACH, the stakeholders created impetus for the next 25 years! Starting from the ideas of the pioneers (Organic 1.0) and the collective achievements of the sector (Organic 2.0), we now also need alliances to move towards our dream of a really sustainable and healthy agricultural and food industry.”
  lessStefan Zwoll, Managing Director, BÖLW (D)
National supporting organization
“BIOFACH has become the World’s leading Trade Fair for Organic Food over the past 25 years. In 2014 it has sharpened its profile as a source of ideas and political think tank. The strong presence of stakeholders from politics, science and business emphasizes its high relevance. The key theme Organic 3.0 was also exactly what the visitors wanted. Once again the sector showed its innovative power and its determination to jointly advance the future of organic agriculture and the organic food industry. All stakeholders at BIOFACH 2014 held intensive talks on developments in the organic sector. The great response from the media, the many visitors and the well-attended congress events are proof of the BIOFACH success story.”

The Netherlands, Country of the Year at BIOFACH 2015
“We are looking forward to giving special attention to organic agriculture in the Netherlands as Country of the Year at BIOFACH 2015. Through her visit on the opening day this year, Agriculture Minister Sharon Dijksma has already shown the importance she attaches to high-quality, varied and sustainable products. This is also appreciated by the Dutch participants, who were very satisfied with the course of this year’s BIOFACH and want to come again next year.”
  lessAnnelies Timmerman, Managing Director, Ecobulbs (NL)
The Netherlands, Country of the Year at BIOFACH 2015
“BIOFACH is and remains a must event for the international sector. At no other organic exhibition can you meet so many important players in such a short time. I was very pleased to hear that the Netherlands will be Country of the Year in 2015. There is no better promotion for a nation. We have already noticed more interest in our flowers at this year's exhibition and will think up something special for exhibiting in 2015.”
  lessHeike Kirsten, Marketing Manager, Rapunzel Naturkost (D)
25th anniversary exhibitors
“We are satisfied with the course of BIOFACH and were delighted with the exhibition management’s visit and the certificate for the 25th anniversary – which we immediately put on display on the stand! We have met all our exporters and held many talks. Everything went really well. This personal exchange of views and the networking at BIOFACH are the most important aspects for us!”
  lessJens Schinnerling, Purchasing Manager, dennree (D)
Wholesale trade in Germany
“The whole sector comes to BIOFACH and celebrates its annual gathering. The mood on the four days of the exhibition was very positive. I particularly liked the hall concept and the stands. Halls 6, 7 and 7A were really super and our buyers, who were underway throughout the site, were full of praise for the international halls too! All our main customers dropped in at the stand and our buyers met all the key manufacturers. Our staff usually spend two to three days at the exhibition. The clear structure means you can organize your visit very specifically. BIOFACH simply offers buyers a super mix of must events and freestyle!”
  lessKarol Szwed, Managing Director, SuroVital (PL)
International exhibitor
“BIOFACH 2014 was very successful for us. We not only met our regular customers, with whom we otherwise only communicate by phone or electronic means, but also used the exhibition to look for high-quality raw materials for our products. BIOFACH scores here with an excellent range – we found what we wanted.”
  lessEmmylou Jacolo Taliño-Mendoza, Governor of Cotabato Province (RP)
International exhibitor
“This is my first visit to BIOFACH and I’m simply delighted. The products in the Philippine pavilion, especially the coconut sugar, attracted a big response from the professional audience and we even took orders at the exhibition. The Philippine exhibitors have also profited from the intercultural exchange at the exhibition and congress. We have set our target for 2015, when we would like to present even more companies and organic products at BIOFACH.”
  lessHatim Medkouri and Dr. Yassir Medkouri, co-founders of Nutrilair (MA)
International exhibitor
“We are presenting our organic spirulina for the first time at BIOFACH and are delighted. The whole sector is represented, so we were able to meet distributors from all over the worldand make highly interesting contacts. This was perfect for us, because we are very interested in exports. We had visitors on our stand from countries like Germany, China, Indonesia, Poland and Serbia. We certainly want to come again!”
  lessPeter Hansson, CEO, Malmö Chokladfabrik (SE)
International exhibitor
“We are overwhelmed. Actually, we could have closed the stand after the first day, as the talks were so successful and so many buyers placed orders. We are a craft manufacturer and Sweden’s only bean-to-bar producer of organic chocolate from cocoa bean through to the finished chocolate itself. We would never have expected such a huge interest. We were looking for an exhibition that suited us – and have found it at BIOFACH at the very first attempt. We will definitely come again!”
  lessBeate Kastl, Field Service, Schilcher Käse (D)

“As a loyal exhibitor we can no longer imagine a year without BIOFACH. The mood is always indescribably good and we meet many friends from the organic sector as well as existing and new customers. There is simply nothing that can replace personal talks. We’ll be there again in 2015.”
  lessMauro Altomare, Managing Director, Azienda Agricola Caputo Maria (I)
Experience the World of OLIVE OIL
“We made even more contacts this year than in 2013 and expect phenomenalfollow-up business. Receiving the Olive Oil Award has, of course, contributed to this. I feel honoured and am pleased that our oil has been so successful.”
  lessMiriam Ascherl, Managing Director, Mostarda (D)
Young innovative companies
“I have already exhibited my vegan mustard specialities in the pavilion sponsored by BMWi at the 2013 event. My conclusion: Young companies that otherwise cannot afford to exhibit at BIOFACH should use this opportunity. There was such a big interest in my products this year that I even ran out of business cards – follow-up business is guaranteed!”
  lessEvgeniya Stamenova, Managing Director, BioStyle (BG)
Novelty Stand
“We presented our raw crackers on the Novelty Stand, which is my personal BIOFACH highlight, because we have benefited a lot from this stand. Many potential customers came to our stand to try the crackers after seeing them at this presentation. We have made valuable contacts and will have a lot to do in the coming weeks. It couldn’t have gone better.”
