IFOAM – Organics International has been the global organic umbrella organization since 1972. From the early days of the pioneers (i.e.‘Organic 1.0’) to the forming of the organic movement and the codification of standards and enforced rules that have established organic with a market value of over US$80 billion per year (i.e. ‘Organic 2.0’). Now the organic movement is entering a new phase that we call ‘Organic 3.0‘.

It is the overall strategic plan of the global organic movement for further growth and sustainability in order to increase the positive impact on the planet and the people.
