Forthcoming event

How to Feed the World in Times of Pandemics and Climate Change?

From 13-16 January 2021, the 13th Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) will address even two global challenges facing the world’s closely linked food systems.
Like climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic reveals the strengths, weaknesses and dependencies of food systems and challenges a secure, global food supply.

The GFFA Berlin e.V. – as platform and voice of the German agricultural and food industry – will continue to contribute to the discussions in 2021, develop solutions and bring stakeholders from politics, science and industry together.

We look forward to welcoming you in January 2021.
