International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM)IFOAM is the worldwide umbrella organization for the organic movement, uniting more than 750 member organizations in 108 countries.
Organic trade is a rapidly growing reality all over the world. The growth rates of the organic sector demonstrate that organic products are moving from the “niche” and entering mainstream markets. The total land under certified organic production worldwide has reached over 26 Million hectares. IFOAM is at the center of this development.

Access to knowledge and capacity building are some of the critical factors in the development of Organic Agriculture, especially in countries where Organic Agriculture is in its early stages.
