International Green Week Focuses on Food and Nutrition Security

3International Green Week (IGW) in Berlin, the world’s largest consumer fair for agriculture, food, nutrition and gardening, wrapped up on Jan. 25. This week-long event attracted more than 415,000 visitors and 1,658 exhibitors from almost 70 countries on no less than 130,000 square meters. About 200 top-ranking politicians, among them 70 agricultural ministers from all continents, visited the exhibition grounds.

The IGW features thousands of international foods, experts’ panels and people experiencing remote controlled tractors. In agribusiness, the IGW is the world’s leading fair, a platform for dialogue and collaboration. It is where consumers and industry professionals can bridge the gap and engage in constructive conversations.

 I invite you to join the global collaboratory!

For DuPont, the event is an opportunity to explore agribusiness trends and discuss challenges in food production that are solved on a regular basis. Gert Keiner with DuPont Sustainable Solutions presented the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Food Security Index in an experts’ panel on water resources. Collaboration was in the air at IGW, and the closing line of Keiner’s presentation put it in a nutshell: “I invite you to join the global collaboratory!”
