Points of interest from Biofach 2023

The main purpose of participating in Biofach 2023 exhibition is to maintain Indonesia’s presence as one of the international suppliers of organic products. In addition, it is also in order to take advantage of the opportunity for supply chain distortions for most countries in Europe as a result of the Russian and Ukrainian wars and the high desire to switch from their suppliers in China. The Biofach 2023 exhibition was also a place for business partners to connect in the international organic sector. As well as meeting for business discussions, the momentum of Biofach 2023 is also used to update trends and innovations that have occurred and will occur in the organic sector.

From the results of our market research during the exhibition, products labeled organic and vegan are increasingly in demand in the European market today and the types of product innovations produced are quite varied, ranging from tofu as pasta filling, vegan tofu sausage and tofu fillet, spread or paste with a mixture of ginger and turmeric as the basic ingredients. This can also be seen at the Novelty Stand, which is a special place to display new and upcoming product innovations on the market, where there are more than 500 new product innovations displayed from various companies and countries.
