IFOAM EU’s Interest Group of Organic Retailers meets, and visits specialised organic retailers in Berlin
The newly established IFOAM EU Interest Group for Organic Retailers (IGOR) met in Berlin for their second official meeting on 17 and 18 January. The first part of the meeting was dedicated to identifying the specific characteristics shared by specialised organic retailers all over Europe, to how to work together, and to defining a working program for the next months. IGOR members are particularly interested in exchanging about best practices that highlight the strengths of specialised organic retailers.
After a lovely dinner, the group was ready the next day to visit different types of organic specialised shops. Finally, the group visited the Green Week before travelling back to their home countries.
The IFOAM EU IGOR plans to meet again in Paris in October in conjunction with Natexpo, the international trade show for organic products.
Members of the Interest Group of Organic Retailers (IGOR) visited three different types of organic shops in Berlin: a Denn’s markt, a Bio Company shop, and here they are visiting the small and cosy BioLino.
