Launch of the CELCAA Sector Vision on “How to achieve sustainable agri-food trade”?

15th November 2023, 4.00 pm – 6.00 pm, Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 Brussels,

Presently, European agri-food traders operate in an environment of continuous uncertainty. Climate change and geopolitical conflicts have shifted areas of agricultural and agri-food production and trade, modes of transport, and processing, with severe impacts on food and nutrition availability, affordability, and security.

Given these challenging circumstances, agri-food traders agree that the triangle of environment, nutrition, and food security needs fresh perspectives to create enabling and innovative conditions to secure a more sustainable business environment. Therefore, we are inviting you to discuss with us new perspectives for an essential sector!
