Circular Economy for Food (CEFF)
The circular economy is an economic paradigm that aims to be regenerative, which has the ambition of reconnecting man to the ecosystem balance, starting from reconstructing that ecological system that supports life on Earth and that man is compromising with incredible voracity.
The current geopolitical challenge of the "food system" is to revolutionize the production model starting from a correct management of the natural capital to which the cultural and economic capital is associated, respecting planetary limits and at the same time offering an equal space to civil society.
The agri-food sector can contribute widely to the development of this paradigm and new opportunities can arise involving all the phases and actors of the foodsystem, from production to distribution up to consumption and final disposal.
The B2B is an opportunity to interact with experts, get to know companies that already adopt circular economy models, to orient themselves on a path of improving business processes and developing new market opportunities.
