There is very little time left for the International Meeting that we will celebrate on June 8. From the Ethical Trade Forums we offer you the opportunity to attend an international meeting aimed at putting professionals from all levels of the agri-food sector in contact. We have organized for that day an extensive program of talks, debates, presentations, workshops and other activities. More than 150 professionals have already registered. From different places of Spain and abroad, they will come to participate in the event that will take place next Wednesday, June 8, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Abades Nevada Palace hotel in Granada.

To delve into the topic “Working towards responsible and balanced supply chains”, we had the participation of representatives from each of the links in that chain. Producers, large supermarkets, workers, exporters, businessmen, union organizations and representatives of two ministries, among others, will be present to offer attendees a broad perspective on the Food Chain Law, the European Directive on Due Diligence, the various programs compliance and responsible purchasing practices.

Clemente Mata, deputy general director of Competitiveness of the Food Chain of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, will intervene to share with the attendees an update on the Food Chain Law.

We will also have the presence of Juan Ramón Crespo Aguilar, advisor to the Cabinet of the Secretary of State for the 2030 Agenda of the Ministry of Social Rights and 2030 Agenda, who will participate together with María Bardolet, from Oxfam, Mónica Vega, from CCOO and Loreto Díez Cerdá , from Cerima Cherries, in the Panel of Experts “Building together supply chains and balanced managers”, moderated by Sergio Barberá, director of Conexión Social.

It will be an event in which the professionals belonging to the companies linked to the Ethical Trade Forums will share ideas, experiences and projects. Companies such as Eurosol, Agromark or Agrícola El Bosque will announce their initiatives aimed at promoting social dialogue within the company, improving the responsible use of ETTs and streamlining mechanisms for grievance complaints in the workplace.

Participatory workshops, updating of the Working Groups, discussion tables and new objectives to be achieved by the Ethical Trade Forums, complete the agenda of an event in which we will resume direct international dialogue, a unique opportunity to present the concerns of the sector, seek solutions together and work to achieve an increasingly committed agri-food industry.

We´ll wait for you!
