BIO BRAZIL FAIR | BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA FOLLOWS THE GROWTH IN THE MARKET OF ORGANIC PRODUCTS AND WIDENS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
FIRST PROFESSIONAL FAIR OF THE SECTOR IN BRAZIL RUNS ITS 13TH EDITION ON JUNE 7 TO 10, IN SÃO PAULO. THE EVENT PROMOTES THE MEETING OF PRODUCERS, PROCESSORS, DISTRIBUTORS, STOREKEEPERS, GOVERNMENT AGENTS, AND CONSUMERS.
The market of organic products is among those that grow more quickly in Brazil. The sector has gained momentum since its regulation in 2011 – which established the mandatory certification and a quality seal to guide the consumer – and has grown substantially since then. In 2016, the sales reached R$ 3 billion, a 20% growth compared to the previous year.

Keeping an eye on the potential of such market, in 2004, many years before the regulation of the sector, Francal Feiras – International Shoe and Accessories Fashion Fair conceived a professional event that might boost the business, collaborate on training, enlarge the visibility, and promote the meeting of producers, processors, distributors, storekeepers, government agents, end consumer, and other links comprising the chain of organic products.
In its 13th edition, the BIO BRAZIL FAIR | BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA – International Trade Fair of Organic Products and Agroecology, to be held on June 7 to 10, at the pavilion of Biennial Fair of Ibirapuera, in São Paulo – is nowadays the official platform for the market of organic products in Latin America.

The fair gathers from market-leading companies, which aim to widen their business volume and build a closer direct relationship with retailers and consumers, to small producers, which participate in the event supported by cooperative corporations and government entities.

The increasing evolution of the Brazilian organic production – which encompasses far beyond natural fruits and vegetables – is reflected in the segmentation of the exhibitors within the fair:

Bio Foods: meats; juices, and drinks; milk, dairy products, and eggs; fruits and vegetables; breads, pastries, cakes, and cookies; honey and by-products; chocolates; coffee; natural and frozen organic foods in general;
Bio Cosmetics: aromas and essences, creams, shampoos, soaps, tonics, and raw materials;
Bio Fashion: bio-jewelry, clothing, fabrics, and accessories; and
Bio Production and Services: inputs and fertilizers, equipment and machinery, certifying entities, advisory services, editorial offices, and packages.

THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR OF ORGANIC PRODUCTS AND AGROECOLOGY receives every year thousands of visitors coming from several Brazilian states and countries around the world. The majority of them are buyers from specialized stores, supermarket owners, wholesalers, distributors, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and other establishments, but also professionals such as nutritionists, therapists, and chefs, in addition to the general attendance, who have the opportunity to taste and buy small amounts directly from producers and manufacturers.

International Forum on Organic and Sustainable Agriculture

BIO BRAZIL FAIR | BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA is also the moment of the year when debates concerning the main themes of the organic sector take place. The International Forum on Organic and Sustainable Agriculture is more than a cycle of presentations and lectures; it represents a democratic space where authorities of the national and international market of organic products discuss public policies, trends, challenges, widening of sales channels, and supply of products, among other themes.

Simultaneous event

Naturaltech 2017 – 13th Natural Products, Food, Supplements and Health Fair, which is the only Brazilian business event focused on the natural product segment, is held together with BIO BRAZIL FAIR | BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA.
