Session Description

The Conference kicks off with a breakfast session that is dedicated to small-scale growers, producer groups, and farmers in emerging countries.

Designed as a platform for producer groups around the globe to present their success models and innovative ideas, the main focus will be on mutual learning and information exchange. Feedback from the various sessions to take place will feed into the GLOBALG.A.P. Revision Process as valuable input. It will also serve as fuel for further debate in an online community for quality managers of producer groups. The goal is to find concrete technical solutions to create an online networking platform for all quality managers of producer groups worldwide to share their ideas, experience and expertise.

The session starts with a short introduction followed by two 25-min presentations highlighting current research status and on-site innovate solutions for working and supporting small-scale farmers.
