Abu Dhabi to host WUWM 2022 Conference
This year, WUWM Conference will take place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, from October 19th to 21st, hosted by AD Ports Group
With the theme “Global food security in the XXIs: Risks, challenges and solutions to ensure resilient and sustainable fresh food supply chains” WUWM 2022 Conference will bring together the major actors of the fresh food system to discuss innovative and effective ways to ensure more resilient and sustainable fresh food supply chains.
Held in the Middle East for the first time, the event will take place in a crucial time, in which the issue of food security rose as a top priority for governments and communities. The current situation in Ukraine, staff shortages, border disputes, port congestions, increasing fuel prices, widespread food sourcing issues and the effects of climate change in food production are amid the major challenges facing the global food industry.
The conference, which will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 19 to 21 October 2022, aspires to make a tangible contribution to find global multi-stakeholder innovative solutions to facilitate access for all to healthy fresh food and tackle possibilities of food crisis.
Stéphane Layani, Chairman of the World Union of Wholesale Markets, welcomed the upcoming conference with great resolution for its outcomes:
“The whole world is at the gates of a possible severe food crisis. The WUWM 2022 Conference represents an opportunity for experts, stakeholders and practitioners of the sector to engage in a productive multi-stake holder dialogue and make our best to find concrete innovative solutions to build greater fresh food supply chain resiliency in order to ensure food security worldwide in the forthcoming years and decades.”
