Bayer showcases sustainable agriculture at Fruit Logistica

From different initiatives such as Bee Care and Smallholder Farming to the BayGAP Service Program, Bayer highlights the diversity of sustainable agriculture at this year’s Fruit Logistica.

For more than 25 years, Fruit Logistica has been the foremost fresh produce event of the year and an opportunity for Bayer and its partners to strengthen their relationships. Held from February 7 to 9 at the ExpoCenter City and CityCube in Berlin, Germany, over 3,000 exhibitors from all over the world will be at Fruit Logistica 2018 to present the newest trends and topics in fresh produce.

For the past 12 years, Bayer has participated in Fruit Logistica via its Food Chain Partnership business model. At this year’s Fruit Logistica, Bayer will showcase different initiatives and programs that contribute to sustainable agriculture.

In addition to Food Chain Partnership, visitors can learn more about Bee Care, ForwardFarming, Smallholder Farming, and the BayGAP Service Program at the Bayer booth – and the special significance that fruits and vegetable have for these initiatives and programs. “Working together with stakeholders and partners is crucial to the entire value chain,” says Ronald Guendel, Global Head of Food Chain Relations. “All these collaborative programs contribute to Bayer’s overall commitment to sustainable agriculture.”

Expert panel on promoting sustainable agriculture in India
Like every year, the Exhibitor Forum will be one of the highlights at Fruit Logistica. In a series of short presentations and a panel discussion, external partners – German Ponce of Greenyard, Dr. Ombeer S. Tyagi of ASSOCHAM, and Giridhar Rao of Griffith Foods – as well as Bayer experts will address the topic “Food Chain Partnership: A Journey of success – A track record of Working with Our Partners in India for Sustainable Agriculture.” The speakers will discuss key challenges of India’s fruit and vegetable production, how to support farmers on the subcontinent, and the overall importance of partnerships and collaborations.

“The fresh food industry in India is facing huge challenges, such as producing food for more people with less impact on the environment,” says Pankaj Sharma, Head of Food Chain India, who will be among the speakers at the Exhibitor Forum. “Our Food Chain initiatives in India are based on delivering tailored solutions that tackle many of the local challenges of growers, traders, and producers.”

The Exhibitor Forum will take place on February 8 from 3:00pm-4:30pm at the CityCube.
