Germany and the Mediterranean – Euro-Mediterranean business alliances to boster the organic sector

Between the 13th and the 17th of February, Biofach 2023 opened its doors in Nürnberg. During five days, the biggest organic fair in the world welcomed stakeholders from across the globe, including ASCAME and the other partners of the ORGANIC ECOSYSTEM project.

ASCAME was proud to offer a platform to 14 Mediterranean SMEs from Lebanon, Jordan, Italy and Greece. These selected entrepreneurial ventures had the opportunity to exhibit their products to potential clients and find synergies.

This was the first time that a trade mission under the Mediterranean label was carried out in the organic sector. The goal was to establish contacts for export and promotion of the Mediterranean diet in Europe. At the stand, visitors could taste typical products with great trade potential, such as zaatar, wine, olive oil, almonds and dates. The catalogue of products was completed with organic cosmetics and fertilisers, proving that the Mediterranean can satisfy the needs of the organic supply chain as a whole.

ASCAME has always bet on the economics of sustainability. That is why ASCAME is an active partner of ORGANIC Ecosystem since 2019.
