Armenia to participate in world’s leading organic exhibition

PanARMENIAN.Net - From February 13-16, seven Armenian food processing companies, led by the organic certification company EcoGlobe LLC, will participate in the world’s leading organic exhibition BioFach 2013 in Nuremberg, Germany.

The participation of these companies in the expo was made possible through the training and assistance of the USAID-funded Enterprise Development and Market Competitiveness (EDMC) project, which helped prepare and lead the companies closer to organic standards conformity and production certification.

Together with EDMC’s local partner EcoGlobe, ABDA LLC, ASVA-RAF LLC, Bizon-1 LLC, Beer of Yerevan, BioUniversal LLC, Nectar-Bonus LLC, and Sis Natural CJSC will present the Armenian organic brand and products, including juices, herbal teas, and essential oils. The companies will have the opportunity to interact with potential customers, observe and analyze the market, and position themselves as competitors in the field.

“BioFach is not only a great image-building opportunity, but also a proven knowledge platform that provides extensive information about the organic sector worldwide,” Nune Darbinian, Director of EcoGlobe, said.

EDMC’s primary focus in this sector is to support Armenian small and medium enterprises to improve their management practices and marketing skills, upgrade food safety and quality, secure prerequisites for conformity with organic standards, and identify possible niche markets for their products. During the past six months the exhibiting companies were audited and organic certified by EcoGlobe with support from EDMC, according to a press release.
