BIOFACH Nuremberg 2020

Biofach 2020 Logo

Join us in Nuremberg, Germany from February 12- 15, 2020 for BIOFACH 2020: The World's Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food & VIVANESS 2020: The International Trade Fair for Natural and Organic Personal Care! 

Organic is more than a label or certification: organic stands for quality, conviction, and the responsible use of nature’s resources. Since 1990, BIOFACH has been the go-to place for organic practitioners to come together and exchange ideas about the sector. It is the perfect chance to meet producers from across the globe and be inspired by the latest organic trends! 

IFOAM - Organics International is proud to be the patron of BIOFACH as in years past and pleased to announce we will also be at the 2020 fair with our team! We invite you to drop by our booth in Hall 1 to say hello and chat with us. If you would like to meet for a formal appointment, we ask that you send us an email at communications [at] (subject: Meeting%20Request%20for%20BIOFACH%202020)  in advance.
