The event will be held on 3 sessions: October 20th, 21rst & 22nd 3PM-4H30PM, on streaming at “FruitAttraction LIVEconnect” platform.

European retail buyers and international institutions, including the European Commission and Fair Trade International, will discuss the best strategies for fuelling the organic market phenomenon in Europe and globally. There will be analysis of the latest consumer behaviours since Covid-19. Large retailers, discounters, specialist channels and e-platforms will also share their supply chain strategies for responding to the growing consumer demand for more engagement with the environment and social issues. From 0 residue to fair trade to permaculture, industry leaders will share their experiences of “value chain” developments beyond organics.
