The European Consortium of the Organic-Based Fertilizers Industry (ECOFI) was founded in March 2014 to provide producers of organic fertilizers, organo-mineral fertilizers and organic soil improvers with a representative voice at the European level. ECOFI advocates a European regulatory framework that recognizes the significant role that organic-based fertilizing technologies play in the development of sustainable models of agricultural productivity, social cohesion and economic growth.
ECOFI membership is open to European producers 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.
ECOFI is listed in the European Transparency Register.

- Information about the sector that is relevant for the public policy makers and the general public.
