The COVID-19 crisis has impacted global food consumption patterns on top of consumers increasingly switching to meat substitutes. Despite the collapse of various primary material markets, the global grains trade system has shown a remarkable resilience to economic shocks and even continued to respond to global social challenges such as climate change and food security.
Global trade has been clearly recognized as a key factor for world economic recovery and the conference will focus on future developments in the grains value chain to secure a dynamic grains and oilseeds sector.
More than 400 participants from around the world are expected to connect virtually on a new digital platform designed for the 2021 IGC Grains conference.
During the two-day conference, participants will have the opportunity to discuss key priorities and likely trends for trade policy in the grains, oilseeds and rice sectors.
The conference program will include 12 panel discussions, virtual table discussions, exhibition rooms to allow more networking and direct contact with fellow participants and exhibitors.
Information on the program will be updated on the IGC Conference page.
