Organic Food Iberia is the leading national and international trade fair for organic products on the Iberian Peninsula held recently at Ifema (Institución Ferial de Madrid/Fair Institution of Madrid).

At the fair, I discovered the latest innovations in the sector and tried some of the products from 400 forward-thinking brands.

I spoke to wholesalers, retailers, distributors, restaurants, manufacturers and ecological farmers.

Organic Food Iberia allowed these individuals and companies to showcase their products on the international stage.

It was an enormous opportunity to share spaces and knowledge with the organic sector in both the Iberian Peninsula and internationally.

The fair’s website says the trade event is for people who”care about Food, Health and the Planet,” pointing out that “sustainability and the environment are important to all of us.”

Wine Talks & The Wine Desk
Leading wine estates were organised by SOW (Spanish Organic Wine Association). I and the many other attendees had the opportunity to taste a wide variety of  Designation of Origin  ecological wines  at the Ifema Convention Centre’s Wine Tasting Gallery.

VIP Lounge
This area was hosted by Biocop and permitted access to buyers and guests in the Media and Wine Sector.

Kitchen Theatre
Sponsored by Alimentos España and renowned chefs who prepared culinary creations in live show cookings utilising organic products.

Allergen Free Vegan Products
This space was dedicated to allergen-free, gluten-free and vegan products.

Innovations is a continuous exploration and a bottomless well of learning
My passion to transfer knowledge has led me to value innovation, conservation, in the national panormaa of gastronomy and wines. The world of organic food products and wines is evolving, and one learns from the winemakers, their clients, the sommeliers,the eco-system professionals, agriculturists and organic retailers, friends and affiliates.
