Paving the path for a sustainable future


Organics are the key to a better world. Let’s join together to protect the climate, create sustainable solutions and shape a future worth living in for future generations.

BIOFACH is more than an exhibition. At the world’s leading trade fair for organic food with the VIVANESS Area for natural cosmetics and personal care, we celebrate the lively conversation that brings people together from all over the world and along the entire value chain.

Visionary ideas and the pooled expertise of the international organic and natural cosmetics and personal care industry will convene again at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre from February 11-14, 2025: Here you will not only experience innovative products and discover sustainable nutrition and cosmetics concepts – you will also broaden your horizons, trade ideas with like-minded people and be inspired by leading experts at the congress.

Only together can we pave the way for a more sustainable food system and a more natural cosmetics and personal care industry. Will we see you there?

Initiatives and new ideas

Shaping the future of food: The Initiatives & NGOs Meeting Point is dedicated to political issues such as fair trade, animal welfare, biodiversity, sustainable use of natural resources and social food systems. For a refreshing take, stop by the Generation Future Meeting Point. This is where the young generation of the organic industry comes together to discuss, network and share inspiration. And the BioThesis research prize will once again honour exceptional ideas concerning sustainability issues in the organic food sector this year.

Organic out-of-home – the new special show Meetingpoint HoReCa

Sustainable and ecological – naturally also out-of-home! Organic food is becoming more and more popular in community catering and the gastronomy sector. Moreover, policymakers are charting a course for more organic foods in out-of-home. With its own forum at the Congress, along with a consolidated offering and from numerous exhibitors, BIOFACH will offer a dedicated meeting point for all stakeholders in the community catering sector. All about organic hospitality – from best practices to lectures, interactive sessions and networking, to a culinary experience in the flagship organic restaurant!
