The Port of Tarragona and the State Ports have organized the International Agrifood Congress, which will take place over two days from 14–15 April this year. This event will be the most important in Europe dedicated to this sector.

The programme has been developed to include the most relevant aspects that currently affect — or will have a future impact on — the agro industrial sector. Topics under discussion will include food and agricultural policy in the EU with regard to health and safety. In attendance will be experts from the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and the WHO (World Health Organization), who will

discuss the impact of climate change on agricultural production and food security. The market and prices are other aspects that will be examined with a representative of the CME. Production and logistics will be discussed by representatives of European ports along with fodder manufacturers in the industry.

This programme will be complemented with visits to the premises of the Corporacio´n Alimentaria de Guissona and the port facilities of Tarragona, while

an extensive period of time will also be devoted to information exchange and networking among all participants within this sector.

This will be a great opportunity for attendees to learn answers to questions that are emerging in food and agricultural markets and a good chance to share ideas and proposals, strengthening personal relationships that will improve business in the future.

The Port of Tarragona is looking forward to the International Agrifood Congress, and will strive to make it as beneficial as possible to everyone involved.
