Sustainability in times of inflation and consumer restraint
• Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH
• Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

09.05 - 09.45 hrs

Germans buy sustainably

Despite inflation, Germans are buying sustainably. Price seems to play a secondary role. What are the reasons? The pandemic? A change in climate awareness? A GfK study provides the answer.
Anna Trautmann, Senior Consultant, GfK

09.45 - 10.15 hrs

Do we need a sustainability label?

Sustainability has many facets. Often it is only related to energy consumption in transport. Something more comprehensive would be the consumption of resources in the entire value chain. But there are other aspects like biodiversity or harmful emissions. It quickly becomes confusing for the consumer.      
Dr. Birgit Schulze-Ehlers, University of Göttingen

10.15 - 10.45 hrs

What does the food retail industry want?

Of course, food retailers want to meet consumer expectations. To do so, they not only have to know them, they also have to formulate concrete requirements for their suppliers. What do these look like? An example.
Prof. Dr. Lang, GLOBUS Markthallen Holding

10.45 - 11.15 hrs – Coffee break - Networking - Marketplace

11.15 - 11.45 hrs

Sustainable Production - Example Avocado

A best practice example of how numerous parameters in production and logistics have been optimized recently.
• Johnathan Sutton, Westfalia Fruit´s Group

11.45 - 12.15 hrs

Sustainable production - the example of bananas

After apples, bananas are still the most popular fruit among Germans. Here, too, there are many efforts and sustainable programmes to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the foreseeable future. We present an example of how resources can be used sustainably.
Peter Stedman, Director of Sustainability, Chiquita

12.15 - 13.30 hrs – Buffet lunch - Networking - Marketplace

13.30 - 14.00 hrs – BREAKOUT

Sustainability and certification

Trade and consumers need security and confidence. Certification is the easiest and fastest way to achieve this. 
Ami von Beyme, GLOBALG.A.P.
René Capote, GLOBALG.A.P.

Sustainable packaging l

Optimal use of resources
When it comes to resource consumption and environmental impact, the word packaging comes up quickly. But you can't do without it. Or only rarely. How can the many different types of packaging be optimised? Material - what is possible? What is impossible?
Phil Rosenow, Fraunhofer Institut für Verfahrenstechnik und Verpackung IVV

Sustainable and efficient production l

Glasshouse production is often criticised by the public for being very energy-intensive. However, under glass the entire energy requirement can already be controlled in a much more targeted and thus more economical way than in the open.
Georg Czerny, BayWa Greentechpark Development GmbH / Leonhard Jancso, BayWa Global Produce

14.00 - 14.30 hrs – BREAKOUT

Sustainable and efficient production II

Sustainable horticulture - greenwashing or reality?
Fruit and vegetables - sustainable by nature? How does horticulture succeed in being sustainable? What is already implemented today, what is sold as sustainable and where is there still potential? Dr. Svea Pacyna-Schürheck shows how many sustainable approaches are already being successfully implemented in horticulture, what great opportunities there are beyond that and calls for a significant increase in knowledge and communication about these issues.
Dr. Svea Pacyna-Schürheck, Landgard Service GmbH

Sustainable packaging ll

Possibilities of recycling
When it comes to resource consumption and environmental impact of packaging, the word recycling quickly comes up. But to what extent is this possible at all? Jochen Rüth, Head of Disposal at the Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister, Deutsches Verpackungs Institut will answer these questions under the title "Recyclable packaging according to the minimum standard of the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (ZSVR) - and the way there!".
Jochen Rüth, Foundation Central Packaging Register, German Packaging Institute

Sustainable - Social - Fair

In addition to the careful use of resources, socially just remuneration and treatment of all employees should also be a matter of course and is therefore another important parameter for a sustainable value chain.
• Dr. Franziska Humbert, Oxfam

14.30 - 15.00 hrs – Coffee break - Networking - Marketplace

15.00 - 15.30 hrs

No life(s) without water

Water - without the most important resource, the earth is a desert and we not only die of thirst, but also starve. Without water, no food can be produced. A sustainable use of our most important food is urgently required.
Coen Frederiks, IDH

15.30 - 16.00 hrs

Sustainable vegetable production in Germany - Where are the plus points?

Sustainability is more than short transport distances. What arguments can German production use to score points? Which customer requirements can be met and how does organic production position itself in this thematic environment? The managing director of the PO with the highest organic share in Germany explains this topic.
·  Johannes Bliestle, Reichenau-Gemüse eG

16.00 - 16.30 hrs

What do we take?

A day with a lot of information is coming to an end. Together with some of the speakers of the day, we want to sum up and look at where we are and, above all, what the goal should be in the future and how we can achieve this together.
• Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH
• Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

Approx. 16.30 hrs – Closing of the conference
