In November 2016 I had the honor to lead the organization of the Second Edition of the Business Roundtable Sustainable Food from PERU in Amsterdam. The idea behind this event is to connect Dutch companies with Peruvian companies which sell sustainably produced foods. Peru is one of the greatest exportes in the world of several organic products such as organic bananas, organic coffee, cacao, and superfoods, and as such is able to position itself as a great exporter of sustainable food.
This event was a collaboration between the Trade Commission of Peru and the Center for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI). In the Seminar we had presentations by Ernst & Young, Wageningen Universtiy, CBI, and representatives of Peruvian companies (Miguel Tang Tuesta of AMPA -Amazónicos por la Amazonía, Candy Morales of CPX PERU) and Dutch companies (Crescendo Organics).
This Business Event Sustainable Food Peru was a great success! Around 12 Peruvian companies (especially natural ingredients) came to the Netherlands to join the second edition of the Seminar and Business Roundtable. Around 12 Dutch companies participated to talk business with them.
