Agriculture & Food

Agriculture forms the basis of all industries and harnesses the natural resources available on earth to support human existence. It plays an integral role in advancing towards prosperity, as it involves interconnected processes that facilitate food production and ensure survival. The impact of agriculture on society is far-reaching, as it sustains livelihoods through food, habitat, and employment, and provides raw materials for various products, thereby contributing to robust economies through trade. The primary output of agriculture is food, and significant efforts have been directed towards ensuring food security and safety globally. Access to high-quality, nutritious food is critical for human survival, and ensuring long-term food security and safety can enhance health and transform lives.

The event of this year has been created to bring experts, companies, and business associations together to discuss, innovate, and create.

Agriculture & Food Conference & Awards

We will address the most interesting topics for the Banat farming community and the food industry, thus bringing their community together.

Lecturers from local institutions and companies will debate how we can grow businesses in agriculture and retail and how we can make sustainability one of the main concerns, in 2 discussion panels:

PANEL 1: How do you grow your business in Agriculture? 

PANEL 2: Sustainability and environmentally friendly methods for food production

At the end of each panel, we will host an Awards Gala of the most representative companies in the sector. Thus, we will organize the most important event for agriculture and its growth, but also for the development of farmers and producers in this area. We debate alongside farmers, producers and processors, retailers, authorities, and related companies and find the best solutions for each, but we also discover the opportunities they may have. We connect farmers with investors, financiers, and supermarkets and find collaborative solutions!
