«The organic Catalan sector is dynamic, young, solid. On the days of the fair, it will show all its strength to a public eager for food sovereignty and ecological and conscious food”, comments its director, Ángeles Parra, about this Barcelona edition.

“The big problems we face have solutions, but time is running out. We must act and we must act urgently. Independent scientists have already rebelled against the inaction of the political class. And the citizens have also said: “Enough!!!”. BioCultura BCN is the fair where the population’s weariness and desire for action is manifested.
