Germany: BioFach 2012 emphasises sustainability

From 15 to 18 February, 2012, the organic world will once again gather in Nuremberg, Germany. Around 2,500 exhibitors and 44,000 trade visitors are expected for this year’s edition of the fair. They will be reflecting on one of the organic industry’s core topics: sustainability. The patron of the global BioFach trade fair family, IFOAM, and the national supporting organisation, Bund Ökologische Lebensmittelwirtschaft (BÖLW; the organic food producers’ association), will focus on questions of ecological, social and economic sustainability in the industry. Prince zu Löwenstein, Chairman of the BÖLW, “These days, sustainability is a term the entire business world wants to commit to. But will this actually lead to methods which ensure a future worth lifing for the next generations? Are resources really being used in a way which ensures they will be available in the long run?” (Picture: BioFach 2011)

The organic industry is further ahead than the conventional agricultural and food processing industry. But, this advantage for society must be scientifically secured and communicated properly, according to Jan Plagge, President, Bioland, Markus Arbenz, Executive Director IFOAM: “Politics and business are faced more than ever with the question of sustainability. For the pioneers of the organic industry, it is part of their daily business. But there are new ecological, social, economic and cultural challenges.”
BioFach and Vivaness are the world’s largest platform for knowledge and information. In 2011, over 8,000 interested professionals visited the more than 150 events at the congress. The focus for 2012,Sustainability in the organic movement moves into the spotlight of the newly established Sustainability Forum. All the special areas of BioFach and Vivaness invite to exchange ideas at the upcoming trade fair in the Specialised Trade Forum, Fair Forum, Gastro Forum, Textile Forum, Vivaness Forum, and Wine Forum.
