Organic Country of the Year

This year, Denmark is "Country of the Year 2009.” Therefore the Danish Ministry of Food and Agriculture and ICROFS represented Denmark jointly at a common fair booth.


In addition, researchers affiliated with ICROFS research projects participated in a series of seminars, where a number of topics with relevance to organic commerce and consumers will be discussed on a research basis.


Among the topics are food security, organics and climate challenges, organic food quality and health.

The fair Biofach is held in Nuremberg, Germany, and gathers around 2,700 exhibitors and 46,000 visitors from more than 120 countries each year.
