Organic Market Visit to Berlin

20/09/2017 - 21/09/2017

Berlin, Germany

This two day market visit has been tailored to suit Irish organic food and drink producers, providing an excellent opportunity to learn from Europe’s largest organic market.

Berlin has been selected as the location for this visit as the city drives many of the key health trends in Germany and has many interesting organic (and related) concepts to visit. This trip will provide inspiration for companies looking to learn from Germany, an advanced organic market, where buying organic is second nature to shoppers. It will provide valuable insight also, for companies seeking to export to Germany and neighbouring markets. Participation is therefore highly recommended for companies seeking to exhibit at Biofach 2018.

Participants must book and pay for their own flights and hotel
