We are pleased to present you with our exciting SUMMIT 2012 program! This year’s SUMMIT promises to be more exciting than ever, with over 400 food experts from more than 50 countries in attendance.
The world is facing a new and urgent reality. Accelerating growth in emerging markets, shifting production patterns and ever-more demanding consumers are challenging producers and retailers to establish a new agri-food paradigm capable of delivering food safely and sustainably in the future.
It’s an uncertain future and one that presents threats and opportunities in equal measure. Increased competition, climate change and growing pressure on land, water and other scarce resources are making it harder to deliver safe and responsibly managed products within a profitable business model. Equally, demographic, socio-political and economic changes – on a truly global scale – present the possibility of access to new markets and the need to more precisely meet the needs of consumers who are increasingly aware of safety, health and sustainability issues.
As the pre-eminent global agricultural certification standard, GLOBALG.A.P. builds uniquely beneficial partnerships between retailers and producers and is committed to helping deliver a truly safe and sustainable future for the agri-food industry. We would like to share with you how this can directly help you grow your business.
SUMMIT 2012 is the perfect forum for discussing key issues, hearing expert opinion from retail, production, public and academic sectors and fully debating the options and arguments that will surely influence and shape the industry for years to come.
