Changes in the food market: new models or new products?

Webinar set up by
FOSAN – Fondazione per lo studio degli alimenti e della nutrizione umana e AGRO CAMERA – Azienda Speciale CCIAA Roma

The globalization of the market has offered the possibility, in rich countries, of always having any type of food available. Consequences of this wide and unconditional availability have been, among others, the spread of new shopping styles, a greater propensity to self-production (and, therefore, the request for a greater variety of foodstuffs), the emergence of greater attention towards the sustainability of production. This webinar offers an overview of the changes that have taken place in the food market over the last twenty years. Particular attention is paid to the ideas that, today, show the greatest potential for driving innovation in the agri-food sector.
