The international organic sector will meet for the 12th edition of Biofach China from 24 to 26 May 2018 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center (SWEECC). About 480 exhibitors and about 18,000 visitors are expected from all around the world.
Biofach China will be more international with separate pavilions from China, Taiwan, Denmark and New Zealand. Following a successful launch, the exhibition will once again introduce a “country of the year” in 2018, the focus this year being on New Zealand. Representatives from this island nation will not only introduce trade visitors to its latest organic products but will also provide details about its particular regional features. The event highlights will also include the online “China Organic Product Directory”, the special “Innovative Product Launch Zone” show containing the most interesting organic innovations of the year, and the “Organic Tea Competition”, offering an opportunity to vote and to network.
China is the world’s fourth-largest organic consumer market
The organic market in the People’s Republic of China is enjoying continued growth, as more and more consumers are turning to products developed on environmental principles: with turnover of more than 5.8 billion USD in 2015, China is now the world’s fourth-largest organic consumer market. Project director Ethan Shi of´ NürnbergMesse China therefore has a positive view of the future of the exhibition and of China as a location for organics: “I am very much looking forward to Biofach China, China’s leading organic event, which will be
held for the twelfth time this year. For the players in the sector, it is the most important business platform for organic products, and at the same time the favourite meeting point for everyone who supports a sustainable lifestyle in China and throughout Asia.”
Inspiring: bundled professional knowledge on-site and online
As a special service, Biofach China is making available its “China Organic Product Directory” online database for a second year. With a wealth of data from more than eleven years of experience in the Chinese organic market, the directory is a valuable research tool to ensure visitors are best prepared to get the most out of the exhibition. The newly planned “Purchasers & Buyers Conference” will also provide an opportunity to present individual business areas in the organic industry. In its supporting programme, the “Conference on the International Organic Food Market and Development” will be sure to offer richly detailed expert knowledge.
