The Go Organic conference, to be held on the sidelines of the Gulfood exhibition, will have speakers talking about the quality aspects of organic produce from Europe, the nutrition value of products organically grown and the importance of organic farming.
In response to the global demand for organic, unadulterated produce, the European Commission supports the programme Activities for Information Provision and Promotion of Organic Products in Third Countries (Russia, Norway, and the UAE).
