B2B for Sustainability and the Circular Economy in the Food Technology Sector
An integral part of the event is the technological B2B organized by the Turin Chamber of Commerce and Unioncamere Piemonte as part of the Enterprise Europe Network, co-financed by the European Commission to support the competitiveness of small- and medium-sized European businesses.
THE LAUNCH AND THE CONTINUOUS EVENT
Like all of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, the B2B will have its first launch in the days of October 8-10, with the organization of bilateral meetings around the three Cs of the Circular Economy for Food:
- Cultural and natural capital (agroecology, biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, precision agriculture, urban agriculture)
- Circularity (efficient and sustainable food production, recuperation and promotion of the byproducts of the food industry, sustainable packaging, soil regeneration)
- Coevolution (reduction of food waste along the food chain, from production to distribution and consumption; systems for monitoring circularity; labelling; social sustainability and gender equality)
The Terra Madre Salone del Gusto B2B will be a continuous event through April 2021, whose calendar will ideally follow the main event, with sessions of bilateral meetings and dedicated webinars for specific technologies (e.g. sustainable packaging) or to transversal themes (like digital marketing in the food industry or future financing opportunities for agriculture).
HOW TO TAKE PART
Until October 2 businesses can sign up on the dedicated platform of the Enterprise Europe Network – an international network of the European Commission that involves various partners with around 600 contacts across the world.
