(Frick, 4.2.2016)  The FiBL stand in Hall 1 (stand no. 549) at BIOFACH will again be an important meeting point during BIOFACH 2016. We will inform you about our work, richly documented with our well-established and new publications from research and extension in Frick, Frankfurt and Vienna.

Since the UN launched the year of pulses, we will exhibit the recently published dossier "Biosoja aus Europa" with current knowledge of cultivation and the market situation on organic European soy. We will also present our popular and revised brochure "100 Argumente für den Biolandbau", where you will find 100 reasons in favour of organic agriculture.

Latest trends in organic agriculture worldwide

FiBL will again have a prominent presence at the BIOFACH Congress (see programme below). One of the major highlights is the presentation of "The World of Organic Agriculture", the annual yearbook with global statistics that we publish together with IFOAM - Organics International. The 17th edition of the yearbook contains data on organic agriculture from 172 countries.

Science Day and Ukraine

The morning of this year’s Science Day is dedicated to innovation in food production. In the afternoon, challenges and possible solutions for organic research in tropical areas will be discussed. FiBL is in charge of organizing Science Day (Friday, 12 February, Room Oslo) together with TIPI, the Technology Innovation Platform of the worldwide organic umbrella organisation IFOAM - Organics International and the European Technology Platform TP Organics.

We also recommend that you visit Ukraine’s country pavilion in Hall 5 at stand 5-255, where ten Ukrainian Companies exhibit their organic products. FiBL is jointly responsible for the stand coordination in the framework of the SECO-founded project "Organic Market Development in Ukraine 2012 – 2016". On Thursday, 11 February, the forum "Ukraine as reliable organic supplier" will take place in Room München from 2 pm to 4 pm.
