AGROBIO – The Portuguese Association for Organic Agriculture

AGROBIO – The Portuguese Association for Organic Agriculture, founded in 1985, is a pioneer institution, playing a determinant role in the dissemination of Organic Agriculture in Portugal.

  • Technical and commercial support to organic farmers,
  • Training on Organic Agriculture and Environmental Education,
  • Research and Development on Organic Agriculture,
  • Social Farming and Reintegration,
