Come taste the rich biodiversity of the African continent at the Organic Africa Pavilion 2020 (BioFach*, Hall 3A – 320 & 322). The pavilion will host exhibitors with a wide variety of ingredients such as;
Gum Acacia (Instant Powder and 100% spray), Honey, Bourbon Vanilla pods, Vanilla for industrial use, cocoa beans, cassava and chia seeds.
Some of the products at the pavilion:
Vanilla is one of the most popular spices in the world and an important ingredient in many products. The exotic Comoros Islands east of Africa have traditionally been an important source of high-quality vanilla to satisfy the demand for this enormously popular spice.
Cassava is a root crop, also known as (or similar to) manioc. The European market is slowly increasing its demand for this new exotic vegetable as people becomes more familiar with it.
Gum Acacia, also called gum arabic, is used in the food industry. The reliability of supplies is an important criteria for this ingredient. This is why the acacia gum that you will find at our pavilion is so interesting. The supplier doesn’t just aim to bring more transparency into gum acacia supplies, but also sources responsibly to secure a sustainable future for this versatile ingredient.
Chia seeds are increasingly popular in Europe. Africa is a new player in this production. The Organic Africa Pavilion will host one producer of this superfood. This Kenyan company is set in the fertile Rift Valley which combines the ideal growing conditions. It is within 3 degrees of the equator and 1500–2000m elevation.
African Honey could be a good and stable alternative for importers to satisfy the high demand of the product. The Tanzanian honey at our stand comes directly from an agro-forestry region, which guarantees that it is pesticide free.
To produce these ingredients, our exhibitors use fair trade principles. Most of those companies prioritise women in their labor force.
