A total of 43 companies certified by the Organic Agriculture Committee of the Valencian Community (CAECV) participate during the next June 7 and 8 in the IV edition of Organic Food Iberia, the international professional fair where distributors, wholesalers will meet , retailers and exhibitors.
The contest will show the main novelties of the ecological sector and Ecuador will be the guest country in this edition, which will also have companies from Paraguay and Argentina.
During the days of the fair, the Valencian Community will once again demonstrate why it is one of the leading autonomies in terms of organic production, with more than 153,000 hectares covered by organic production methods, with more than 4,200 certified people and a volume of turnover of more than 700 million euros.
Of the 350 exhibitors that will meet in Hall 7 of IFEMA, 43 are Valencian companies, thus becoming the autonomous community that contributes the most exhibitors to the fair. Nuts, olives, chocolates, wines, EVOOs, fruits and vegetables, nougat, salt or aromatic herbs, are some of the products that professional visitors will be able to find at Organic Food Iberia.
Enhacement of the public ecological certification
The novelty for this edition is that the autonomies that have public ecological certification will share the same space, with the aim of putting it in value and highlighting its benefits.
In this way, autonomous communities such as Murcia, La Rioja, Catalonia, Navarra, Madrid or the Valencian Community will share the same area of IFEMA Hall 7, grouped by INTERECO, an entity that brings together the 14 public authorities for the control of organic farming that currently exists in the national territory.
The public control entities, in addition to participating in the fair with their exhibitors and in different talks, will talk about the values of public ecological certification, highlighting aspects such as efficiency, simplification in management, adjusting the cost of certification, the optimization in the management of resources and the transparency and independence of action, encouraging the participation and structuring of the sector.
