Duration: July 23rd – 31st, 2022
In recent years, the leading international trade fair for organic products Biofach has attracted over 50,000 international visitors and more than 3,000 exhibitors from ca. 90 countries annually. After transitioning to a smaller scale digital edition last year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the fair will physically return to the halls of Messe Nuremberg from July 26th to July 29th, 2022.
Cambodia with its high-quality agricultural and niche products is especially well suited for organic production. The trade fair represents an ideal opportunity for Cambodian producers of agricultural and food & beverage-related products to better understand the potential of the organic market in Europe and connect with German and international buyers – both conventional and organic.
The 7-day program of the Business Delegation Visit in Germany encompasses a two-day visit to the trade fair Biofach (including talks with selected buyers and exhibitors) and a preparatory one-day training on trade fair participation, as well as on trends in the German Food & Beverage sector including an overview of associated buyers & importers. In the four days following the trade fair visit, meetings with German buyers, buyer cooperatives and related business associations in selected German cities will be held.
Applications are open to all Cambodian companies producing products related to the sectors agro-processing, food & beverage, and agriculture in general who are interested in finding European buyers. Availability of / interest in organic certification is a plus but not a requirement. Companies able to produce product volumes sufficient for major German buyers will be given preference. Up to 10 representatives from Cambodian companies will be able to take part in the program.
GIZ will cover the organization of the business delegation visit including all related appointments and match-making activities. Furthermore, the travelling costs within Germany and costs for insurance will be borne by GIZ. The following costs are to be borne by the participants themselves: Cost for international travel, cost for EU visa, cost for accommodation & individual meals, and further unforeseen costs that may arise. Please note that participants of the Business Delegation Visit will be visitors – not exhibitors – of the trade fair.
