Organic Conference in Izmir, Turkey

Leave a comment

The 4th International conference on
the organic development in Central/Eastern European and Central Asian countries will take place in Izmir, Turkey!

This year’s conference will focus on organic farming and how to maintain and improve its integrity. As Turkey is one of the leading organic cotton and textile producers, sustainable textiles will be included in the conference.
Organic products can be trusted. The inspection and certification regime is the best the food industry at large has ever experienced. But scandals and fraud cases weaken the integrity
of organic.
Some issues which may later result in
fraudulent actions have their beginning in the failure of successfully implementing organic principles in farming or at any other point of the food chain.

Experiences and challenges in organic quality assurance along the product chain will be discussed from the point of view of producers, processors and certifiers.
This year the conference will be held in parallel to the organic trade fair Ecology Izmir, providing participants the chance for B2B meetings as well as for traders to join the conference.
