February 19: Future Farmers and their market!

 

This event is part of Grassroots Science and the debat serie: ‘It’s the Food, my friend’

The food market is strongly moving. Some supermarkets are focusing on cheap food or high quality products. Farmers think about direct selling to consumers. The traditional family farmers cannot find a successor, while most high educated young entrepreneurs start with producing food. Which way does our food go to? Which network is the most sustainable one for healthy food? Hear all about it on Thursday 19th of February.

 

Speakers:

  • Hanny van Geel, landbouw en voedselcoöperatie Via Campesina
  • David Klingen, ex-sustainability manager Ahold, Jumbo, C1000 and Marqt. Now sustainability consultant selling Ghee.
  • Corneel van Rijn, boerderij Buitenverwachting
