Organised by IFOAM Organics Europe and Ecovalia , the event will bring together major industry players, including European organic farmers, traders, retailers, certifiers, associations and companies, policy makers, researchers and other key players in the organic sector, to address key issues related to distribution , promotion , innovation and generational change in organic production.
There will be an exhaustive programme of presentations on September 26 and 27, covering the trends and challenges of the organic market, the keys to promote organic food and methods to increase consumption, as well as developments in organic regulation, innovation in certification, and new genomic trends. Participants in the event will also be able to enjoy a networking dinner, in addition to a practical experience, scheduled for the 28th.
“The fact that the European Organic Congress is held in our country, hand in hand with Ecovalia, is a great opportunity for Spain to be in the focus of European organic production during this year 2023. It will be a meeting point for strategies for innovation, promotion and consumption for our sector,” said president of Ecovalia , Álvaro Barrera , during the presentation of the event during BIOFACH. “Córdoba will become the European capital of organic production with this event, which will be the most important for the sector. This will undoubtedly be the time to demonstrate the potential of our country’s organic sector.”
The European Organic Congress has the institutional support of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of the Government of Spain, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development of Andalusia and the Diputación de Córdoba, in addition to the support of entities, organisations and companies leaders in the European organic sector.
