IFOAM EU’s retailers meet in Paris and participate to Natexpo

21-22 October, the IFOAM EU Interest Group of Organic Retailers (IGOR) had their third meeting in Paris. On 20 and 21 October, the members had the opportunity to visit Natexpo, France’s international trade fair for organic products. The retailers met in the morning of the 22nd. They discussed topics including an update of the organic retail market situation across Member States, the impact of certain articles of the new organic regulation on retailers, and going further in identifying what defines organic specialised shops in Europe. In the afternoon, the IGOR members visited some organic shops, including “new concept” shops such as the Naturalia vegan shop and a Biocoop shop “le retour a’ la terre”, owned by one of the IGOR members, and what a soulful shop it is!

IFOAM EU extends a heartfelt thank you to Synadis bio for organising this meeting and the wonderful welcome!
