BIOFACH World – Quarterly News Update Vol. III 2021
- BIOFACH AMERICA and BIOFACH INDIA successfully held
- BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA Retail Week brings exhibitors and purchasers into contact
- BIOFACH in Nuremberg lined up to start
The world of trade shows can breathe easily again: A ray of hope following turbulent times as in-person meetings can be held once more. Both BIOFACH AMERICA and BIOFACH INDIA were able to take place as in-person events in recent weeks. The pleasure of meeting again in person will be experienced at BIOFACH in Nuremberg in February 2022, followed by further BIOFACH World events in the spring and summer of 2022.
A double premiere for next BIOFACH AMERICA and Natural Products Expo East, which were held for the first time at their new venue, the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, from 22 to 25 September 2021. That also made them the first trade shows in the sector to be held there again since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. And very successfully, too, attracting more than 800 exhibitors and over 15,000 registered visitors, who had the opportunity to interact with colleagues, learn from experts, and discover for themselves the latest innovations that will soon find their way onto the retail market. The signs for the event were very good: According to figures from the Organic Trade Association (OTA), 2020 broke new records. US buyers were opting even more for organic products, boosting annual turnover with growth of more than 12 percent to almost $62 billion. By comparison, growth in the entire US market for foodstuffs and non-food products was less than half as strong, at just 4.9 percent. The euphoria was also clearly evident in the exhibition halls, where the latest products in the areas of Organic,
Natural & Specialty and Health & Beauty were on show. An extensive supporting programme with presentations and prize awards rounded out this successful re-start. Industry participants unable to travel to Philadelphia had the opportunity to take part in the trade show via a virtual platform.
Save the date! The 19th BIOFACH AMERICA will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia from 29 September to
1 October 2022.
