As in the past years, also in 2019, SEKEM presents itself at the world’s largest fair for Organic products: the Biofach in Germany. This time, the focus was on introducing the new products of the SEKEM Demeter Brand, which are available in Europe for the first time since a few months via the SEKEM Online Shop. In addition to the well-known teas, oils and sesame bars, new date confectionery varieties and peanut products have been presented at the fair.
A special highlight of this year’s Biofach was the visit of students of the Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development. Six young pharmacy students and two lecturers visited Germany in the mid of February and also stopped by at the booth of the SEKEM Initiative in the German city Nuremberg.
Besides, in the framework of the Biofach, a project of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development was presented, which will finance knowledge hubs for Organic farming all over the African continent. SEKEM will be the coordination center for the North African hubs.
In addition to the numerous business meetings and exchanges with colleagues, customers and partners, the Biofach fair is also always a wonderful opportunity to see many old friends again share news on recent activities and projects.
