Dr. Felix Prinz zu Löwenstein
Chairman of the German Federation of the Organic Food Industry (BÖLW)
"The exhibition centre became a lively international market place dominated by impressed exhibitors and visitors in aisles of BIOFACH. The fact that this trade fair is attended by a number of top political, administrative and diplomatic corps representatives means it has become one of the main places for debates concerning the future of the food and organic farming industries. With Germany appearing as the country of the year, the German organic enterprises at the exhibition were able to highlight their abilities in the areas of innovation and sustainability in a special way."
Managing director of BIOFACH's international patron, IFOAM – Organics International
"It's been a record year for the organic sector and a record year for BIOFACH! The trade fair reflects the great mood in the industry excellently. It is where attention is drawn to the topics that affect the professionals in production, trade, services and politics and that people have to be aware of if they want to be successful with organic products. For both Germany and the rest of the world, organic farming is a tool that can be used to achieve the UN's global Sustainable Development Goals, which are officially supported by most countries."
Member of NürnbergMesse's management board
"After four successful days at the two exhibitions, we and the organic industry are pleased that there was a great atmosphere in the halls and that those who came were able to meet high-quality contacts. As well as by the country of the year Germany, plenty of inspiration was provided by the STADTLANDBIO (CITYCOUNTRYORGANIC) congress and the varied programme entitled NUREMBERG THE ORGANIC CITY. We’re already looking forward to the next edition of the exhibition duo and seeing all the market players for BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2018."
