Building on last year’s theme, ‘Organic 3.0 – good framework for more organic’ – is the focus of this year’s congress. The presentations, workshops and panel discussions give visitors and exhibitors at BIOFACH and VIVANESS the opportunity for varied insights into currently discussed issues from a wide range of segments throughout the exhibition.

For many countries, including Germany, Denmark and the USA, 5–10% growth for the whole year is already becoming apparent again in autumn 2014. Especially encouraging is that Great Britain has registered an increase again, for the first time in four years.
