Organic trade and agriculture are rapidly growing realities 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 International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) is the worldwide umbrella organization for the organic movement, uniting more than 750 member organizations in 108 countries. IFOAM publishes leaflets to explain key issues regarding organic agriculture and a range of issues. More leaflets offer reliable facts on issues such as biodiversity, Participatory Guarantee System and food security and provide an overview of related IFOAM activities.
