All about BIOFACH

Learn everything you need to know about BIOFACH – the World´s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food



Opening times


Meeting place of the organic and natural cosmetics sector

The World´s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food, combined with the VIVANESS Area (for the range of natural cosmetics), is an important business event, an emotional event for the sector, and both a get-together and an opportunity for positioning. Not for nothing is the exhibition duo the annual platform for:

  • Network: Nowhere else do all the customers, suppliers, partners and potential new customers meet personally in a comparable way.
  • Market: This is where supply meets demand – for both visitors and the exhibiting companies. Manufacturers present their company and products to the whole community and observe and analyse the market and position themselves for the competition at the same time.
  • PR: BIOFACH is used for imagebuilding by manufacturers and traders and all the stakeholders involved. With over 500 media representatives from over 20 countries and extensive media reporting, the exhibition duo offers a powerful PR platform.
  • Knowledge: The Congress provides extensive information about the organic sector and informs about current developments in the natural cosmetics sector. Over 7,600 congress participants sourced information at 128 individual events in 2024.
  • Politics: Every year, the exhibition duo gathers representatives from politics, associations, NGOs, VIPs and other opinion formers and figures of public interest. Here the organic stakeholders discuss matters concerning the future of the market and use this joint platform for shaping the future.

Success story of BIOFACH

BIOFACH takes place for the 34th year in succession in 2023 and can look back on an outstanding success story. The exhibition was founded by Hagen Sunder, Hubert Rottner and Jürgen Ries and it all began with 197 exhibitors in the Ludwigshafen Stadthalle in 1990. Some 2,500 visitors attended the "1st European Trade Fair for Organic Food and Natural Products" at that time. The exhibition was organized in Nuremberg for the first time in 1999 and brought together as many as 1,276 exhibitors and more than 15,384 visitors. 2001 the founders decided to put the organization of BIOFACH into the hands of NürnbergMesse. Since then BIOFACH has developed into the World´s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food and is firmly established. In 2007, the natural cosmetics segment was separated from the trade fair and successfully organised as the International Trade Fair for Natural Cosmetics and Personal Care parallel to BIOFACH for 17 years. From 2025, the natural cosmetics and personal care section will once again be integrated into the centre of BIOFACH. The multifaceted range of natural cosmetics products will then be located in Hall 4A.
