In Serbia, the value of exports of organic products has increased more than 15 times in the past 10 years, announced the Serbian Chamber of Commerce.

In 2021, compared to 2020, exports jumped by 53 percent and amounted to 57.4 million euros.

“Serbia as a producer of organic products has existed on the world market for more than 20 years, and during that time all indicators show rapid and stable development”, said Bojana Lalović from the Center for the Organization of Fairs, Manifestations and Events of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce.

At the moment, there are more than 7,000 producers, and many of them regularly participate in international fairs, where they promote their organic products.

He explains that Serbia has been continuously present at the leading International Fair of Organic Products “BioFać” in Nuremberg, Germany for more than a decade.

First, the performance was organized by the National Organization of Serbia Organika (NASO), and from 2019, the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia and the Development Agency of Serbia take over this role through the entire preparation of the organization and financial support of the performance of domestic organic companies at the “BioFać” fair.

The success of the “BioFać” fair was also contributed by the cooperation since 2019 with the Swiss Export Promotion Program (SIPPO), which actively works with the Chamber to increase the capacity of both service organizers and export organic companies.

“At the upcoming BioFać 2023 fair, which will be held from February 14 to 17 next year, 11 companies from Serbia will take part”, announced Lalović.

Under the slogan “WE SPEAK ORGANIC”, Serbian organic producers will present their range of products, from fresh, dried, lyophilized and frozen fruits and vegetables, organic cereal products, flour and pasta, organic fruit jams, to honey and dried mushrooms.

The fair will be attended by “Agro-Bis” from Blac, “YUGOTREJD”, “BMD” and “Drenovac” from Arilje, “EcoAgri Serbia” from Bela Crkva, “ES Komerc” from Prijepolje, “Frutorga” from Prokuplje, “ITN Group – Eko Povlen” from Kosjerić, “Master Food” from Užice, “Menex” from Kruševac, and “Cmana – Medino branch” from Krnjevo, RTV reports.
