Eco sector not hit by crisis


The largest organic and alternative fair closed its 24º edition with plenty of visitors passing through its doors. More than 140,000 people visited the four day fair in Madrid’s Casa de Campo to see what more than 800 exhibitors had to offer to improve our quality of life and the environment. Angeles Parra, director of Biocultura, commented that the eco sector was not as badly affected as other sectors and that the attendance at the fair indicated that people were starting to change their buying habits, demanding more healthy and sustainable food and other products. Vida Sana, the organisers of the fair pointed out that in the organic food sector many companies were still growing strongly showing that consumers, although with less disposable inclome, were spending more conscientiously. Sra Parra continued, “consuming organic produce is a saving in the long run. With better health we spend less on doctors and the food is more nutritious. And people are learning to appreciate the value of food, because at the end of the day, we are what we eat.”
