Organic Denmark at BioFach show: Innovative Organic Food to Suit Everybody’s Taste
Under the heading ‘Taste, Talent, Attitude’, Organic Denmark is set to present organic products from Denmark at the BioFach 2012, the world’s largest trade fair for organic products, to be held
in Nuremberg. A total of 22 exhibitors will introduce their products and novelty items to the trade fair guests on the joint trade stand of the Danish umbrella organisation ‘Organic Denmark’ in
Hall 1 and will demonstrate that organic food from Denmark stands for taste, innovation and trust.
Examples of Nordic cuisine prepared using organic foods from Denmark can be sampled at the stand itself: Top Danish chefs will set to work in the show kitchen in order to conjure up exquisite
and modern examples of Scandinavian cuisine using the raw ingredients of the companies present at the fair.
“With our motto, we are hoping to raise awareness that Danish companies are constantly developing new and exciting organic products whilst also taking into account the foodstuffs that consumers
like – regardless of whether this is a gourmet requirement or for everyday consumption”, explains Klaus Bentzen, Export Manager, Organic Denmark. Customers can therefore trust the goods 100
“In 1989, Denmark was the first country in the world to introduce a state control of organic products”, explains Klaus Bentzen. This is shown on the products in the form of the unmistakeable
red “Ø” logo, which stands for organic. Danish consumers zoom in on organic products when out shopping: 7.5 % of the foodstuffs purchased stem from organic production – a figure that is
higher than in any other country in the world.
The companies will present luxury goods such as an award-winning dark chocolate made using Criollo cocoa beans and frozen organic baby food. A Danish ice cream manufacturer has developed an
organic ice cream that is high in energy and will be particularly used in hospitals.
Manufacturers of milk and flour products will also be represented at the BioFach trade fair, with a wide range of lactose and gluten-free food products. “An increasing number of people suffer
from lactose or gluten intolerance”, explains Klaus Bentzen. “Our companies have responded by bringing out corresponding organic ranges”.
