The European Consortium of the Organic-Based Fertilizer Industry (ECOFI) is the representative voice of European producers of organic fertilizers, organo-mineral fertilizers and organic soil improvers. ECOFI promotes the contribution made by the organic-based fertilizers sector to the emergence of a knowledge-intensive, environmentally sustainable and high-employment economy in Europe. ECOFI was founded in March 2014 by 12 innovative companies who are deeply committed to the development of organic-based fertilizing technologies that support sustainable models of agricultural productivity, social cohesion and economic growth. Members are active in most European countries and also export to, or are active in, many other countries, including the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Together, the membership accounts for roughly 60% of the European market in organic-based fertilizers, which is worth about 250 million euros. ECOFI membership is open to any European producer in the sector whose production fully ensures the upstream traceability and the origin of raw material components. Relevant associations and other organizations are eligible to become affiliates.
