4th international Biofruit Congress on organic demand and sustainable supply

Wed 14/07/2021 by Pierre Escodo

After the great success of the previous 3 editions, which received more than 400 delegates, Eurofresh Distribution magazine and Fruit Attraction team up again to discuss the future of organic F&V markets and other growing “value chains”. The event is being held over 2 sessions: on June 17th 3pm & October 5th 3-5pm at IFEMA Madrid during FRUIT ATTRACTION.

The first session held last June 17th attracted nearly 300 online delegates. You can still watch it on YouTube.

European retail buyers and international institutions, including the European Commission and FairTrade International, will discuss the best strategies for fuelling the organic market phenomenon in Europe and globally. Considering the latest consumer behaviours since Covid-19, how to better respond to the growing consumer demand beyond organics, for more engagement with the environment and social issues?
