In less than two months, the international organic food and natural cosmetics sectors will kick off the year with their annual gathering in Nuremberg from 14 to 17 February 2018. This is when BIOFACH, the world’s leading fair for organic food and VIVANESS, the international trade fair for natural and organic personal care, will again open their doors to an expected 50,000 and more trade visitors. The BIOFACH and VIVANESS congresses combined represent the No. 1 knowledge transfer and networking event for the organic sector and attract enormous interest from all market players year after year. In 2017, more than 8,000 delegates used the industry and knowledge-sharing platform featuring more than 120 different sessions to obtain information and network with one another.
