BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2024 attracted 35,000 visitors and 2,550 exhibitors to Nuremberg, highlighting global efforts for sustainable food systems.
The BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2024 trade fair, held 13-16 February in Nuremberg, marked a significant milestone with an outstanding turnout of around 35,000 visitors from 128 countries, featuring 2,550 exhibitors representing 94 countries. This year’s theme, "Food for the Future: Women’s Impact on Sustainable Food Systems," highlighted collaborative efforts and commitment towards sustainable food systems on a global scale.
Working alongside partners such as the Inter-Continental Network of Organic Farmer Organisations (INOFO), IFOAM Asia, and IFOAM Organics Europe, we successfully organised a series of engaging sessions covering a diverse range of topics, led by expert speakers and moderators.
In this space, we also were delighted to welcome the Taiwanese delegation, with whom we officially launched the Organic World Congress (OWC) 2024. Stay tuned for regular updates on this exciting development in the coming weeks.
Beyond the sheer numbers, BIOFACH continues to serve as a beacon of hope, showcasing the power of collaboration and innovation in shaping a brighter future for our food systems. This is evident in the vibrant interactions and exchanges that took place. Furthermore, the event's impact continues to resonate across social media channels, amplifying its reach and influence.
We want to thank all participants for their invaluable contributions to making this year's trade fair a resounding success. Plans are already underway for the next edition, scheduled to take place from 11th to 14th February 2025.
