BIOFACH World – Quarterly News Update Vol. I 2022
Good news from BIOFACH World: The seven months from May to November 2022 will see no less than six gatherings of the international organic community around the globe, following two challenging years in the shadow of the pandemic. The events will be hosted in Shanghai, São Paulo, Nuremberg, Delhi, Philadelphia and Riyadh. In Brazil, the eager anticipation about BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA after a two-year intermission matches the excitement about a reunion in the USA, where BIOFACH AMERICA enjoyed a successful restart in 2021 at its new location and exhibition venue in Philadelphia. In 2022, BIOFACH in Nuremberg will take the form of a one-off summer edition. At BIOFACH World, planning for 2023 is at full tilt, as the two remaining BIOFACH events out of a total of eight, i.e., BIOFACH JAPAN (Tokyo) and BIOFACH SOUTH EAST ASIA (Bangkok), are set to take place in March and July 2023 respectively.
The first BIOFACH event in the trade fair calendar for 2022 is BIOFACH CHINA.
Save the date: The 16th round of BIOFACH CHINA will take place from 12 - 14 May 2022 parallel to the NATURAL EXPO CHINA at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center.

“We can hardly wait to go back to Philly from 29 September to 1 October 2022. After its highly successful premiere with 800 exhibitors and more than 15,000 visitors attending BIOFACH AMERICA and the Natural Products Expo East following the relocation to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia last year, the prospects are looking good for 2022 as well,” says a delighted Katharina Neumann, Manager International Events at NürnbergMesse. “For example, it has already been confirmed that Argentina, Brazil and Germany will have their own pavilions at the event! Incidentally, it is still possible to register for all the pavilions.”
LIMBUA is one of the exhibitors taking part in the premiere of BIOFACH SAUDI ARABIA, the BIOFACH Summer Edition 2022 in Nuremberg and the BIOFACH AMERICA event. Its founder Matti Spiecker says: “For LIMBUA, BIOFACH is the No. 1 event in the organic sector where we regularly meet existing contacts and customers in person. Especially after the pandemic-imposed break, we are looking forward with our expanded sales team to exchanging ideas and building and strengthening our valuable relationships. BIOFACH fairs outside of Germany, like the event in the USA, provide LIMBUA with insights and experience-based knowledge relating to distribution and markets in those locations. Apart from getting to know people in person, our goals for the BIOFACH fairs in 2022 include acquiring new customers and presenting our new products. As well as our organic, fair-traded macadamia nuts and macadamia oil, we are now also offering organic avocado oil from our own mixed crop production in Kenya. Alongside our raw macadamias, our product range includes tasty roasted macadamias in chilli, BBQ and honey flavours that we will be presenting live at the event. Naturally, it all comes directly from our own production facilities in Kenya in the accustomed high organic quality. We are very much looking forward to the gathering. For us, BIOFACH is not just a trade fair but the chance to meet and talk among friends and thus gain valuable inspiration for all of us!”
