Plans for the second edition of Organic Food Iberia are now well underway. Since its successful launch edition six months ago, more than 70 % of its exhibition space for 2020 is already booked – with pavilions from the USA, Korea, France, and Austria confirmed.
Taking place at IFEMA exhibition centre in Madrid, Spain, on 3-4 June, Organic Food Iberia will showcase organic food and drink from across the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of the world. It’s expected to welcome 7,000 organic food retailers, multiple health stores owners, supermarket buyers, distributors and wholesalers – who’ll be there to see and sample products from over 600 richly-diverse exhibitors.
Organic from around the world
Thanks to its collaboration with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), and the Inter-American Commission on Organic Agriculture (CIAO), the companies will have a 50 sqm pavilion at the show. This new association promotes the expansion of organic markets in America and, for the first time, opens new business opportunities with European buyers.
