The United Nations Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO) is also co-organising the plenary sessions 18 May, involving highly qualified and experienced professionals in order to raise awareness, both on a national and international scale. Around 200 markets professionals will be present at the event, as well as trade organisations, representing a complex but articulate Agribusiness system, ever so fitting worldwide.

The overall theme of the conference is: “The Fresh Way To Feed The Planet” and issues regarding access to nutritious food, organic food and logistics of the markets will be discussed.  The official languages of the event and the technical inspection will be English, French, Spanish and Chinese.

The early-bird deadline will end on 1 April 2017.

Technical markets visits will be made to the Wholesale Market of Rome and to the retail market of Testaccio.
