Fair trade, the certification possibilities and the various testing seals will play greater roles at IPM ESSEN 2016.
Commerce is attaching ever more significance to fair trade products. The awareness of the consumer is rising. Behind coffee, cut flowers occupy second place amongst the most-distributed fair trade products in Germany. According to the latest annual report of TransFair, it was possible to achieve a turnover of more than Euro 118 million in 2014 - with an upward tendency.
For next IPM ESSEN there are plans for a compact presentation area for exhibitors who have already had their products certified with the Fair Trade seal as well as for an accompanying information and discussion forum.
