BIOFACH INDIA, India’s Largest International Trade Fair on Organic Products, celebrates its 10th-anniversary edition in New Delhi 25th – 27th October 2018, at the Pragati Maidan exhibition center, New Delhi, an ideal platform for international buyers to witness the wide variety of organic products that India has to offer.

The latest statistics show that India produced around 1.67 million MT (2017-18) of certified organic products which include all varieties of food products namely Sugarcane, Oil Seeds, Cereals & Millets, Cotton, Pulses, Medicinal Plants, Tea, Fruits, Spices, Dry Fruits, Vegetables, Coffee, along organic cotton fiber, and functional food products.

BIOFACH INDIA (BFI), member of the BIOFACH World events, organized by NuernbergMesse India is proud to announce APEDA - Agricultural and Processed Food Product Export Development Authority, joining as joint organizers for its 10th-anniversary edition. The event is also supported by IFOAM as International Patron.

With AIOI (Association of the Indian Organic Industry) as Trade Connect Partner and Bio-Dynamics Association of India, as supporting partners, BFI 2018 will set new benchmarks after the success of the Organic World Congress last year in India.

"India's organic food market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 23 percent by 2023, on account of favorable government policies supporting organic farming coupled with rising land area under organic cultivation," the organizers said.

"Online availability of organic food products and shifting consumer preference towards organic food are among the major factors expected to boost demand for organic food products in India during the forecast period. Expanding marketing and distribution channels coupled with an increasing number of health-conscious people is also anticipated to fuel organic food consumption in India until 2022."

BIOFACH India 2018 will once again attract participation from many leading private organic stakeholders such as: Brahm Arpan, MRT Organics, Suminter India, Phalada Agro, Sresta, Just Organik, Radico, Mehrotra Consumer Products, Agronic Food, Sarveshwar Foods, Natureland Organic, Cultivator Natural Products, Samruddhi Organic Farms, Kejriwal Bee Care, Organic India, and the various State Pavilions from India.

Besides food and beverage, there will be participation from the natural care and wellness sector, organic textiles sector, certification bodies, government boards and farmer groups and approximately 10,000 visitors over a period of three days.

A major highlight will be Natural Expo India – International Trade Fair and Conference for Natural Products, co-located with BIOFACH India 2018.

 “BIOFACH INDIA has established itself as a well- known brand name since its launch in 2009. It is a must-attend event for the organic community from India and all over the world to converge annually," said Sonia Prashar, chairperson of the board and managing director, NuernbergMesse India.

"Our joint collaboration with APEDA together with active support from leading associations like ICCOA, OFAI, AIOI, and BDAI will ensure the organization of a grand 10th edition this year."
