This theme starts from the need to change the current system of food production, packaging, distribution and consumption; starting from the needs of the individual up to the large GDO companies.
We have reached a level of exploitation and waste of natural resources that does not allow a future vision, moreover the quality of food is put at great risk by the pace of growth and increase in global demand. At this rate we are running out of every resource and excellence in favor of an uncontrolled consume that generates an enormous amount of food not used and thrown away as waste.
Ecofood means turning towards sustainable practices in every area of the food sector:
- Sustainable production – the use of new technologies for food production: Agritech – Biobased products – sustainable farming
- Sustainable packaging – involucres that do not impact the environment due to the production resources used and the generation of waste or pollution
- Sustainable transport – avoiding the import and export of food, favoring the production and marketing of local products
- Sustainable consumption – promoting food education in all generations to avoid waste or the demand for foods whose production requires exhaustible resources or which damage the environment
GECO EXPO will give visibility and space to all economic and social actors who promote sustainable practices for the food supply chain. The goal is to develop a collective awareness that leads to sustainable food production, distribution and consumption and that guarantees a better environmental and social future.
It is for this reason that Ecofood as a theme is also dealt with in the educational, interactive, virtual Green Education project GECO For School, born as an active response to the positive experience of GECO EXPO, destined this time to Italian high schools, aka the protagonists of the future: the students.
Understand the production processes that often starts with daily alimentary choices and ends with possible sustainable solutions that are already taking place in responsible and attentive enterprises means believing in the future by presenting a problem than becomes solution, creativity and work.
