During the Organic Marketing Forum 2008 an award ‘Best of Organic’ for the best presented organic product will be granted for the first time. All exhibitors are invited to take part in this contest.
By organising this contest EkoConnect as the organiser of the event would like to present to the public the diversity and high quality of organic food from Western and Eastern European countries. The demand for organic food at the consumers’ level shall be stimulated and new organic producers and handlers shall be motivated to step into organic production. The application deadline is April 30th, 2008 and applications should be submitted to the following address: EkoConnect, Arndtstraße 11, 01099 Dresden, Germany; fax +49 351 206 6174.
Each exhibitor may register one out of all their products for the contest. Participation in the contest is free of charge. The conditions for registration of the product are: submission of current organic certificate and presentation of the product in question during both days of the Organic Marketing Forum. Out of all applications the three top organic products of 2008 will be chosen. The jury will consist of the expert audience of the Organic Marketing Forum: each visitor of the exclusive organic conference – representing expertise and know-how within the organic sector – may vote.
The winners will be announced on May the 27th, 2008 within the Organic Marketing Forum 2008. Producers and handlers who wish to participate in the contest are kindly asked to submit the following product registration application form. Deadline for submission to EkoConnect is April 30th, 2008.
EkoConnect will use the data from the product registration form to distinguish all products in question by applying a unitary label throughout the conference.
