BioFach América Latina: Great start at the new exhibition location in São Paulo

The parallel exhibitions BioFach América Latina and ExpoSustentat got off to a great start at the new exhibition venue in São Paulo from 25-27 October. The fourth exhibition of organic food and natural personal care and the second exhibition of products from sustainable and fairtrade projects closed with a record number of exhibitors and visitors. Compared with the previous year, the organizers, Nürnberg Global Fairs and the Brazilian partner Planeta Orgânico, registered approximately twice as many exhibitors – some 300 (2005: 156) – and trade visitors – 6,200(2005: 3,200).

The acceptance of the new location in the Transamerica Expo Center in Brazil’s largest and most powerful business city São Paulo was outstanding. The growing importance of the organic sector for Brazil is underlined by the fact that the billion dollar mark is expected to be reached by the end of the year. The German companies in the Federal Republic’s official pavilion were very satisfied with the visiting professionals and the lively interest in their products.

ExpoSustentat: Sustainability in practice

Sustainability has been discussed throughout the world for years. Politics and industry has been aware of the necessity for combining economy, ecology and social responsibility at least since the Agenda 21 Conference in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The 179 signatory states have, however, rather lost sight of the process of realizing the ambitious targets, although the necessities are constantly confirmed by dramatic occurrences like the climate change.
