IFOAM is the acronym for the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements. This was founded after a meeting which took place in Versailles, France on 5th November 1972. It was organised by Roland Chevriot of Nature et Progrés. He invited a number of participants including Lady Eve Balfour, founder of the UK Soil Association, Kjell Arman from the Swedish Biodynamic Association and Jerome Goldstein from the Rodale Institute. Every three years IFOAM holds an Organic World Congress, the latest of which was in Delhi, India in 2017.
