BioFach China 2012 confirms key role in Chinese market

The sixth BioFach China in the INTEX Shanghai Exhibition Centre from 24 to 26 May 2012 was a great success. The three-day exhibition under the patronage of NürnbergMesse and the China Green Food Development Center attracted more visitors once again. Altogether 15,963 trade visitors (2011: 14,613) poured into the exhibition centre to source information from 189 exhibitors from eleven countries. The three country pavilions from the USA, Australia and Italy were also well-visited. Against the background of the new market situation, BioFach achieved an optimum position in Shanghai and confirmed its role as leading platform for the organic sector in China.

The visitors at BioFach China – including government members, certification officers, manufacturers, retailers, and members of institutions and associations – were able to obtain information about a comprehensive range of products and the whole value chain in the organic sector. A total of seven seminars took place during BioFach China 2012. They were organized by government and certification bodies, international exhibitors and eBusiness companies and were attentively followed by some 400 participants.

The new certification standards for organic products were the most discussed topic on the supporting programme. The “China Organic Congress” celebrated its premiere this year. The next BioFach China takes place in the INTEX Shanghai Exhibition Centre from 23 to 25 May 2013.
