At this year's edition, 40 Romanian producers will exhibit their products on a 400-square metre area, benefiting from an enhanced visibility and attention from governmental delegations, business people and relevant associations, visitors, the Romanian and international press.
Romania was the country of the year at BioFach 2013 held in Nuremberg over Feb. 13—16, being represented by over 55 firms dealing in organic farming. Romania's pavilion at the trade fair covered 600 square metres. On the second day of the event, Prime Minister Victor Ponta toured Romania's pavilion alongside Minister of Agriculture Daniel Constantin.
According to data provided by the Ministry of Agriculture, Romania had about 3,000 operators in 2010 in the organic agriculture and at the end of 2012 their number reached 26,000. The areas engaged in organic agriculture reached almost one million hectares, but the maximum potential has not even by far been reached. AGERPRES
