Press releases about BIOFACH AMERICA - ALL THINGS ORGANIC
From 22 to 24 September 2016, organic products were once again the focus of everyone’s attention at the Baltimore Convention Center. BIOFACH AMERICA – ALL THINGS ORGANIC, which was held at the same time as Natural Products Expo East, drew over 28,000 visitors (2015: 26,842) to the American East Coast from abroad. They were able to learn about raw materials and organically produced products in the food and non-food sectors from roughly 190 (2015: 159) organic exhibitors. Organic products are continuing to increase in popularity in the USA. According to the Organic Industry Survey carried out by the OTA (Organic Trade Association), Americans spent USD 43.3bn on organic food in 2015. That’s 11 % more than in 2014. The growth also explains the significant rise in the number of visitors at the two exhibitions. BIOFACH AMERICA – ALL THINGS ORGANIC was very international again as well: In addition to national pavilions representing Korea and Argentina, the Spices Board from India was there too. Enterprises from 28 countries took part altogether. As well as the product displays, visitors and exhibitors alike benefited from a top-quality conference programme as usual and from a wide variety of workshops.
