AgroEco-Louis Bolk Institute
Louis-Bolk Institute is an independent international knowledge institute to advance truly sustainable agriculture, nutrition and health. Together with its African partner organisation Agro Eco-Louis Bolk Institute in Accra the institute conducts practice-oriented research and offers practical solutions that can be directly implemented by their target groups.
Since 2015, ProFound has been working closely with Agro Eco-Louis Bolk on the comeback of the Organic Africa Pavilion to Biofach to promote Africa as a source for high-quality organic products. By joining forces we were able to launch the pavilion again in 2016 where 9 exhibitors from Ghana, Senegal, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe met over 500 potential buyers. In 2017, the two organisations will built on this success and come back with more exhibitors from even more countries.
“Our cooperation with ProFound already resulted in big success: A fresh start for the Africa Pavilion with a new look. It provided a great platform for the companies we support to do business in Europe. I am looking forward to Biofach 2017”
