The Italian exhibitor Bioagricoop is exhibiting again at BIOFACH AMERICA LATINA

Bioagricoop will exhibit their organic range of products 100% made in Italy as pasta, olive oil, tomato sauces, wonderful wine and cookies.

Bioagricoop is a non-profit organization, born in 1984 as a cooperative to contribute actively to the promotion and the development of organic farming and sustainable food both at national and international level. In 1985, the cooperative joined IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement) and took an active part with it in defining organic agriculture regulations. Bioagricoop also became the first company accredited by IFOAM for the certification activity in the entire Mediterranean area. In 1988, Bioagricoop promoted the constitution of AQB (Organic Quality Association) to guarantee and verify the quality of organic productions. In 1993, it obtained the recognition of the Italian Ministry of Agriculture and Forests for its activity of control and certification in the organic sector. The certification work amount increased rapidly; for this reason, in 2002, Bioagricoop promoted Bioagricert S.r.l., a new independent company that manages all the control and certification activities.
