Over the summer, members of the COSMOS team travelled to Nuremberg, Germany, to attend VIVANESS, the biggest international event celebrating certified organic and natural cosmetics. We were delighted to share our stand with some of our certification partners: BDIH (Germany), EcoCert (France), ICEA (Italy), Control Union (South Korea) and Cosmebio (France).
COSMOS hosted two successful VIVANESS congress events. The first shared fascinating insights into different trends that shape global markets, and the second delved into the changes coming in the next version of the COSMOS-standard (version 4) which will be published later this year.
The more than 24,000 trade visitors from 137 countries were present at the combined BIOFACH and VVIANESS event, relishing the opportunity for personal exchanges, networking and in-depth discussions of topical issues for the first time since 2020.
