Organic Africa at BioFach

For the second time at Biofach all the 35 African stands were grouped together under “Organic Africa”, comprising 120 exhibitors who displayed their products in an area measuring 500 m². The producer groups, growers’ associations, exporters, organisations promoting exports and individual companies came from 15 African countries, including Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Namibia, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was a pity the Nigerians had not obtained an entry visa. Senegal were also absent, because a sponsor had withdrawn his support. Nevertheless, the organisers Grolink (Sweden) and Agroeco (Netherlands) expect more countries to take part next year.
