Expanding Export Opportunities for U.S. Organic Products
The United States is the world’s premier producer and supplier of organic food and agriculture products. U.S. companies have the opportunity to introduce their finest organic products to the international market at BIOFACH, the world’s largest organic trade event, held each year in Nuremberg, Germany.
The next Biofach will take place February 14-17, 2018. FAS provides a professional platform at Biofach by linking potential customers from around the world with U.S. exhibitors. Please visit us in Hall 4A at booth 4A-729. You can find all exhibitors in the U.S. pavilion here: List of U.S. exhibitors at Biofach.
Exporting to Germany and throughout Europe has been streamlined by the EU-U.S. Organic Equivalence Arrangement. Since 2012 organic products certified in the United States or EU can be sold as organic in either market. The arrangement broke down many of the barriers that U.S. organic producers, especially small and medium-sized farmers, were facing in exporting their goods. The organic arrangement expanded market access and reduced duplicative requirements and certification costs while protecting organic integrity.
