The eleventh BioFach China end of May counted more exhibitors and visitors and was more international too. The 17,555 visitors (2016: 16,546) came from all over the world to the Shanghai World Expo Convention Center (SWEECC) to find out more about the organic products from the 476 (2016: 337) international exhibitors. Along with companies from various regions in China, there were also pavilions from Taiwan, Korea, Thailand and Japan. A total of 17 countries and regions were represented.
At the exhibition for the first time: the Country of the Year
The 2017 winner was Denmark, one of the leading organic countries in Europe. A total of eight Danish organic companies presented their products. The Danish Agriculture and Food Council also gave a talk about the latest organic trends at the parallel congress which was very well attended with 300 participants.

Darren Guo, Managing Director of NürnbergMesse China, is more than satisfied with how the exhibition went: „The success of BioFach China 2017 is most mpressive. Over the past eleven years, we have been able to develop an indispensable industry platform for China and the whole of Asia. BioFach China stands for a sustainable and healthy lifestyle and is therefore more than just an exhibition at which first-class organic products are presented. It also gives major players in the organic industry the opportunity to discuss political framework conditions, industry developments and innovations.
Supporting programme: congress and forums well attended
The accompanying International Organic Food Market and Development Conference was once more able to offer its participants a first-class programme with added value in professional terms this year. 30 experts from government, certification bodies, research institutes, the trade press and organic production shared their experiences and market knowledge with the Chinese and international organic industry.

On the second day of the exhibition, trade visitors could look forward to two new formats. The first Natural Product Forum, organized by NürnbergMesse China and the certification body CERES (Certification of Environmental Standards GmbH), placed the focus on natural products which are currently at the certification phase to become organic products. Trends relating to and marketing approaches for these products were also discussed. The China Organic Vegan Forum also took place on the second day of the exhibition. Industry experts exchanged ideas and experiences on the topics of vegan and organic produce at the special show - The Real Food Organic Kitchen and The Organic Club.
