About Events

Just as we have ushered in a new decade, Covid19 has influenced all industries worldwide and changed the consumption habits and preferences of everyone. In the post-pandemic world, all industries will have to review their processes, with the food industry being the primary one. While we have a duty of feeding 10 billion people by 2050, the actions aimed to save the day will be in good faith, but inadequate for overcoming the effects of the epidemic. The impact of climate change on agriculture, the difficulty in accessing healthy food, parts of the world starving while other parts experience obesity, our shopping habits that change with our consumption preferences, expectations to reduce the carbon footprint... 

Thinking about how we can overcome the effects of the epidemic is just the tip of the iceberg. Now, the issue that all stakeholders should focus on with a larger perspective is how we can implement the strategies that prioritize people's health while creating a sustainable world. 

Therefore, on our 28th anniversary, we aim to cover the industry with a 360° approach at our area called FOOD ARENA by integrating various formats, subjects and expertise into our event program.
