About IFOAM Organics Europe

IFOAM Organics Europe is an independent regional group within the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM).

IFOAM Organics Europe advocate for the development and integrity of European organic food and farming and fight for the adoption of ecologically, socially and economically sound systems based on the principles of organic agriculture – health, ecology, fairness and care.

With more than 210 member organisations from the EU-28, the EU accession countries and EFTA, our work spans the entire organic food chain and beyond: from farmers and processors, retailers, certifiers, consultants, traders and researchers to environmental and consumer advocacy bodies.

The IFOAM Organics Europe contributes to shaping and implementing Community agricultural, environmental, health and consumer policies and regulation in a number of ways.
