"The industry players here in Nuremberg showed themselves to be full of strength and strategies for the future. The positive atmosphere that was palpable in the exhibition halls was deeply moving and filled me with joy on a personal level. It is remarkable how rich, inspiring, solution-focused and forward-looking this sector is. Organic is the future!" Petra Wolf, Member of the Executive Board, NürnbergMesse
The BIOFACH and VIVANESS Congress, with a total of 120 professionally polished individual sessions and high-calibre participants, attracted almost 8,000 delegates and once again proved to be a forward-looking forum for the sector.

This year's trade fair was a tremendous organic success! Much as we cannot wait to see you at the next one scheduled for 13-16 February 2024, there are still a couple of other regional BIOFACHs happening throughout the year that you are welcome to participate in.
BIOFACH aims to provide platforms throughout the world to connect actors across the organic supply chain and in so doing, further develop the regional markets and organic sector at large.
"With its slogan Paving the Path, BIOFACH is showing the way as the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food. It is a place for innovative, committed business operators and visionaries to network, with a clear focus on ‘30 percent organic’ by 2030, and using positive, powerful examples to illustrate how we can shape the future differently."Chair of the German Federation of the Organic Food Industry (BÖLW)
