6th edition of the B.I.O.N'DAYS: how to sustainably secure organic sector growth? (New dates)

6e édition des B.I.O.N'DAYS : comment ancrer durablement la croissance du bio ?

This event dedicated to organic products, organised by the Bio Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Cluster and the Drôme Department, has become over the years the international business meeting to anticipate and exchange on the organic products of tomorrow. The 6th edition, which was to be held in Valence (France) on 25 and 26 March 2020, was first rescheduled to 8 and 9 July, following measures taken by the French government to limit the spread of the coronavirus, and then finally postponed to 9 and 10 June 2021.

Reading time
~ 3 minutes

For this 2020 edition, national and international experts will shed light on the sustainability of organic growth, in a context of increased development of supply and demand with the emergence of neo-consumers.

Organic consumption has the wind in its sails. The curiosity and appetite of the French for organic products are no longer to be demonstrated: in 2018, nearly 9 out of 10 French people (88%) declare having consumed organic products.
Even though organic consumption is now commonplace in France, 73% of the population has been consuming organic products for less than five years.
The challenge of this rapidly growing market is twofold: to develop the loyalty of new consumers while responding to the evolution of their expectations.

For two days, national and international experts will share their insights and experiences, allowing companies to gain insight into the future challenges of the organic market.
This convention will also be an opportunity to present the evolution of the prospective study conducted by the Organic Cluster, which aims to anticipate the organic markets of 2025, by developing a trend scenario since 2014 around different variables on consumption, distribution, public support and the evolution of purchasing power.
