INDIA LEADS THE ORGANIC MOVEMENT!
CELEBRATING 10 years of BIOFACH INDIA – INDIA’S LARGEST INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR ON ORGANIC PRODUCTS
The 11th edition of BIOFACH INDIA, the only organic platform in India to connect and network with your target audience is scheduled to be held from 7 – 9 November, 2019 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India.
India’s largest and most focused event for organic products provides the perfect business platform to organic stakeholders, retailers, exporters / importers, Govt. boards, state pavilions, certification bodies, consultants and associations from India and all over the world to congregate for networking. Such a high quality of visitors and exhibitors is what sets the fair apart from any other fair in the Indian market.
Organic is more than a label or certification: organic stands for quality and conviction – for the responsible use of nature’s resources. BIOFACH INDIA is the meeting place in India where anyone and everyone who is connected to organic converge annually to share their passionate interest for organic products, network at a common platform and educate themselves about the latest developments in the organic sector.
India holds a unique position among 172 countries practising organic agriculture: it has 6,50,000 organic producers, 699 processors, 669 exporters and 7,20,000 hectares under cultivation. Today, Sikkim is an organic state with 75,000 ha of land under organic cultivation based on an initiative that started in 2003. Meghalaya aims to convert 200,000 ha under organic farming by 2020. With growing awareness about health, changing lifestyles and increased spending capacity in India, experts say the country’s organic food market has a bright future. A recent government study predicted its value would reach $1.36 billion per year by 2020.
The Government of India will soon be setting up specific agriculture export zones well placed with ports and airports in the country, aimed at boosting the exports of India’s agricultural produce internationally.
“The government has also drafted a new national agriculture export policy to support the export of organic products. The policy has been jointly prepared by the Ministries of Commerce, Agriculture, and Food Processing,” said Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce and Industry and Civil Aviation, while inaugurating BIOFACH INDIA 2018.
