by Redaktion (comments: 0)

India is sourcing country for many interesting organic raw materials. BioFach India / India Organic, which takes place on 6 - 8 November 2014 in Cochin / Kerala, is a good occasion to get to know Indian companies and the market or to discover new products. An authentic impression of the work of organic farmers, of their products and of the land and people in general is to gain best through site visits. The Indian Association of Organic Agriculture ICCOA takes care of projects all over India and it is a concern to open access for Indian organic raw materials markets in the USA and Europe.

The three different packages include the round-trip flight, accomodation and trade fair visit with matchmaking meetings and trips to organic producers as well as a tourist program to get to know the country.
