In addition, visitors will be able to obtain information about an extensive range of organic products in the Fully Organic special show.
The presentations and workshops that will be offered at Anuga Organic as part of the Centre of Expertise for Organic Products will provide participants with practical information and address advanced training. Among other things, the new EU process for importing organic products from non-EU countries will be explained. In addition, the aims and labelling systems associated with vegan products will be presented and and issues such as regionalism and labelling will be addressed. Tasting sessions for wine, olive oil and other products will provide participants with insights into various organic food and drink segments. A special initiative will be the Save the Soil sustainability campaign, in which various dedicated companies - from manufacturers to trading firms - are involved, as are scientists and celebrities.
