The Marche region today boasts more than 2,300 producers and 2,288 operators, and the land cultivated following the dictates of organic methods now represents 12% of the total amount of farmed land, a percentage which is on therise. For many years now, the Marche has put an agricultural requalification plan in place offering numerous incentives for organic production in terms of quality and sustainability together with innovation and the enhancement of products.
It is no coincidence that the region has seen the birth of the first five historical organic cooperatives still operating and exporting in several European and non-European countries; moreover numerous organic products companies with selling points, are spread throughout the territory of the Marche region.
The selling points belong to Consorzio Regionale (Regional consortium) “con marchebio” supported by the Marche Region.
Conmarchebio http://www.conmarchebio.it/ website is in Italian, English, German and French languages.
Con Marche Bio is the next step forward in the evolution of the organic segment in the Marche region.

It is the proof that the organic production chain is alive and kicking. In fact, over the last few decades it has played an important role financially speaking, not only in Italy but also in the rest of the world. And the Consortium was founded precisely to confirm and improve the presence of regional specialties on the markets.
