Dear Certified Producers,
The Organic Federation of Australia (OFA) will be running Australian stands at 3 international trade shows, at no profit, to assist organic producers who want to sell their products to buyers around the world.
These are Biofach in Europe, Natural Products Expo Asia in Hong Kong and All things Organic in Chicago, USA. The OFA chose these shows, as they are the ones that will give producers the most exposure in the major organic markets around the world.
BIOFACH, Nuremberg, Germany, February 17-20, 2010
BioFach is the world’s largest organic trade fair.
The global recession had no impact on Biofach in 2009, its twentieth anniversary. Over 46,000 trade visitors from 130 countries and 2,717 exhibitors spread over 12 halls participated in the largest global organic event. This is similar to 2008 when more than 2,600 exhibitors presented their products to 46,484 trade visitors from 116 countries.
Biofach represents a wonderful opportunity for organic producers to showcase their products to the world. Buyers from around the world converge on Biofach. A significant number of buyers come from Europe. At $25 billion, this is the world’s largest organic market. Europe imports a significant proportion of its organic food.
Biofach is the largest trade show for organic cosmetics and bodycare with buyers from around the globe looking for good products. The organic cosmetic exhibitors at the OFA stands in 2009, 2008 and 2007 generated excellent business.
All Things Organic, Chicago, USA, June 16-18, 2009
The USA is a major importer of organic products as demand outstrips supply in most areas. The show also has trade buyers from Canada, Mexico and Latin America. Read the All Things Organic 2009 Brochure
