FQH - Organic Food Quality and Health Research Association

The International Organic FQH Research Association encourages, coordinates, and disseminates research in the field of organic food quality and health. It promotes interdisciplinary as well as specialised investigations on organic food quality concepts and novel research methods to study the influence of organic food on human health.

The FQH Association was founded in 2003 by four European Research Institutes with the support of stakeholders from the Organic Food Trade and Industry. In 2008 FQH had 14 research members with an active interest in organic food quality and health, and 17 supporting members that are companies or non governmental organizations.

The research institutions work on research projects in the field of organic food quality and health, and jointly develop concepts and research methodologies that do justice to organic systemic thinking. Feedback from supporting members regarding the research direction and specific topics, is regularly obtained during working meetings and/or specific events like the annual BioFach trade event in Germany.
