FoodFactory-4-Us Final Conference on Sustainable Cereals - 6 March 2020

6 MARCH - 12.30 - 16:00 CET

Register for free at! This conference will be interesting for university students of all levels and academic faculty in any food-related programme, cereal industry representatives, and anyone interested in sustainable food production. See the programme attached with the fresh ideas and topics of the student teams!

Free and open to the public!!

The FOODFACTORY-4-US SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION - organised by the ISEKI-Food Association in collaboration with ICC -  as part of the NextFOOD project - has been running since November 2019 with student teams from universities worldwide competing in a game based on participatory education and action learning to find the best solutions to how ancient/alternative grains can contribute to improved sustainability in the cereal chain.
