Organic Expo with BioFach - Japan’s meeting place for the organic industry
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The Tokyo Big Sight exhibition venue will once again be focusing on the organic industry from 20 to 22 November 2014, when Organic Expo – together with BioFach Japan opens its doors for what will already be the 14th time. The organisers expect about 200 exhibitors and 18,000 visitors to attend this year. The exhibition’s slogan is “Organic is our future – life with organic”.
Japan’s demand-driven market is continuing to grow and consumes processed organic products and natural cosmetics from all over the world. Organic land in the country is increasing too. According to the MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries), 0.4 % of Japan’s cultivable farmland is organic, and it is hoped that this percentage will more than double by 2018. To promote this target, the MAFF is providing the country’s organic farmers exhibiting at Organic Expo – together with BioFach Japan with participation support. About 50 organic farmers will be representing their businesses and displaying their products at the MAFF pavilion in November.
In addition to an extensive range of organic products and natural cosmetics offered at the fair, visitors can also look forward to a trade conference on current and future market themes. The BDIH (the German association of industrial and retail companies for medicines, health food, food supplements and cosmetics) will be giving a presentation about certification guidelines for natural cosmetics on the exhibition’s integrated Organic Stage. The fair will feature talks by representatives from organisations such as JONA (Japan Organic and Natural Foods Association) and Control Union Japan. Exhibitors will be given the opportunity to give their presentations at the Exhibitor’s Forum. The Novelty Stand is the place for anyone interested in innovations and unusual organic and natural personal care products. More information is available here.
