About us

IFOAM is a membership organisation with members from countries all over the world. The goal is the worldwide adoption of ecologically, socially and economically sound systems that are based on the Principles of Organic Agriculture: Health, Ecology, Fairness, and Care.

IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo is an official Regional Group of the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movement. The history of IFOAM-ABM goes back to 1990 starting with the first meeting held in Vignola (Mo), Italy. IFOAM-ABM gathered members from three continents (Africa, Asia, Europe) and 16 Mediterranean countries.

IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo coordinates the activities of IFOAM-member organizations in the Mediterranean Region. It promotes, develops and disseminates information, knowledge and expertise related to Mediterranean organic agriculture and food production. IFOAM-ABM improves local development, enforces harmonization actions and goals between different countries and institutions and promotes the cooperation among various interest groups involved in the organic value chain.
