EBIC/New Ag International Farm to Fork Conference
Bringing together a diverse community of thought leaders, sustainability experts, and food chain stakeholders, the conference will transform your understanding of the global business drivers that will shape your operating environment for years to come. Join us in Athens in June 2022 for sessions on:
Session 1: Geopolitics of Food and Agriculture
Food production, trade, security, and sustainability occur against a geopolitical background that is increasingly challenging. We explore how these geopolitical forces affect policy choices and constrain or enable the actions of business, farmers, consumers and other stakeholders. As agriculture copes with producing enough healthy food to feed a growing population in this ever-changing context, biostimulants have emerged as an essential technology to add to the toolbox.
Session 2: Biostimulants, Ag-Inputs and Climate Change
In this session, speakers and panellists address the gaps between reality on the ground and the imperatives of global climate change and how policy can either empower or hobble efforts of farmers, business, and consumers to close that gap. This session explores how to manage climate-related goals within food production and the difficulties of achieving them without adding biostimulants to the mix. It asks how policy frameworks can accelerate the scaling of innovations that will allow leaps forward in grappling with climate change.
Session 3: Biostimulants and Promoting Soil Health
There is a growing recognition that an existential sustainability crisis is forming under our feet. Around the globe, soil degradation and loss of topsoil are literally eroding our agricultural productive capacity just as the demand for high-quality food increases inexorably. Soil health means looking beyond physical and chemical indicators to the health of soil ecosystems, which is are tied to soil carbon, a key factor in both mitigating and adapting to climate change. This session will look at the growing momentum to prioritize soil health and the central contribution that plant biostmulants can make to protecting and improving this precious resource.
Session 4: What does "food for all" mean in Europe today?
In a global context, hunger in Europe may seem like a distant memory. But when you scratch below the surface, the picture is more troubled. Malnutrition is more prevalent than undernutrition, as relected by the relentless climb in obesity across the region over recent decades. The underlying reasons are complex and include socio-economic factors. But when late frosts, record drought, and floods struck in 2021, food prices soared, and some fresh produce became rare. How can food production become more resilient to climate volatility, and how can plant biostimulants help? How can the food chain, including the biostimulants industry, better cope with logistical shocks like those covid has triggered?
New business insights inspired by a unique combination of Agribusiness economic, environmental, social & regulatory perspectives
The 2022 Farm to Fork Europe conference begins by examining the challenging geopolitical context and how it affects agriculture from supply chains to getting food to consumers. The geopolitical forces considered in the first session affect policy choices and constrain or enable the actions of business, farmers, consumers and other stakeholders.
DISCUSS CLIMATE CHANGE
Climate change is no longer something our farmers are preparing for — it is something that they already have to cope with. In the second session, the conference addresses the disconnect between the imperatives of global climate change and current practices and how policy can either empower or impede efforts of farmers, business, and consumers to make necessary changes.
ADDRESS SOIL HEALTH
Soil health means looking beyond physical and chemical indicators to the health of soil ecosystems, which is are tied to soil carbon, a key factor in both mitigating and adapting to climate change. This session will look at the growing momentum to prioritize soil health and the central contribution that plant biostmulants can make to protecting and improving this precious resource.
RETHINK SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION
Sustainably feeding a growing population requires closing three gaps: between the amount of food produced today and what is needed tomorrow, finding extra land to do so -- even if productivity can be improved per hectare, and avoiding the extra emissions that would make the climate crisis worse. Seen through this lens, plant biostimulants emerge as a vital technology to help close these gaps. Biostimulants can improve yields, rehabilitate soils to make them (more) productive, and reduce the waste of fertilizers that contribute to nitrogen-related emissions when lost to the environment.
DELVE INTO NEW POSSIBILITIES
Investors and ag professionals from the wider food chain will identify new opportunities to use investment, disruptive technologies, alliances and climate-smart solutions to make the Next-Gen food chain a reality, with the help of biostimulants. With our state of the art networking platform you can be sure to meet new connections in a time efficient manner.
EXPLORE NEW OPTIONS
Executives from the Biostimulants industry will gain fresh ideas and applicable tools to take their businesses to the next level by securing investment, leveraging disruptive technologies, allying with the wider food chain, and capitalizing on climate-smart food production.We will be hosting interactive problem solving sessions throughout the event, involving smaller groups and teamwork, meaning that you will leave this event with real-life take home messages!
