WUWM’s conference titled: “Fresh food distribution in the post Covid-19 world: Challenges, opportunities and pathways to ensure resilient and sustainable food systems and access to healthy diets” in Florence is happening on June 25th. This will be a key event to connect and to work together with all major stakeholders of the fresh food sector (farmes, international organisations, wholesalers, wholesale markets, experts, NGOS) to envision together a pathway to a more sustainable food system.
“Florence is looking forward to welcoming you. This conference will create the necessary energy to explore the future of our food systems and understand in depth the important role that wholesale markets have in the post Covid-19 world”
Chairman of Mercafir Scpa
During the past year we have witnessed disruptions of food supply chains around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has upset the food system like never before. From logistical issues, a shortage of workforce, to radical changes in demand, each country shared challenging moments.
We exchange ideas, share best practices and work with international organizations, governments, and consumers.
We raise awareness and education to help everyone eat better and contribute to a healthier, more resilient, and sustainable international food system.
