Nearly 10% growth in German organic market
The turnover of organic food grew strongly in Germany in 2016 writes the online Magazine for Organic Trade, “organic-market.info”
The growth of nearly 10% was reported by the Bund Ökologische Lebensmittelwirtschaft (BÖLW) and the Arbeitskreis Biomarkt prior to the launch of BioFach, the organic trade fair in Nurenberg, Germany.
Germany is ‘country of the year’ at the fair. Under the motto “Building an Organic Future” the Ministry of Agriculture is going to present, among other things, its Future Strategy for Organic Farming and the host country will introduce “Organic as a knowledge-based and values-based economic system” to the anticipated 48,000 visitors from all over the world. Over 2,700 exhibitors and a comprehensive Congress programme will once again be the platform to present everything that’s new and innovative, concepts and ideas, and figures and analysis around both the international organic sector and the organic movement.
