Knowledge exchange within IFOAM EU

Interest groups

We have four interest groups. They consist of our members and are established to provide direct involvement from sectors in the organisation of IFOAM EU. The interest groups formulate official policies and positions of relevance for their sector: 

  • Interest Group of Organic Farmers
  • Interest Group of Organic Processors
  • Interest Group of Organic Retailers
  • Interest Group of Organic Certifiers (established in 2019)

Working groups

Our working groups bring together the huge expertise of our membership. They regularly exchange on topics relevant to their areas of expertise:

  • IFOAM Aquaculture Forum – EU coordination
  • Central and Eastern Europe Expert Group (Capacity Building)
  • European Organic Comms Hub
  • Genetically Modified Organisms – GMO
  • Expert Group on Plant Protection Products and Fertilisers
  • Expert Group on Seed

When political developments and developments within the movement call for it, we set up task forces with our members that have excellent knowledge on the topics. In 2018 we had task forces on:

  • Climate Change
  • Cosmetics
  • Implementation of the new regulation
  • Textile
