Food producers and retailers gather their raw materials and finished products from all over the world. Thanks to fast means of transport and advanced cooling techniques consumers have the possibility to use exotic throughout the year, following recipes from a world cuisine. But this globalization of food brings benefits as well as risks and disadvantages. Transport of food around the world causes food safety risks, despite and sometimes thanks to chemical pesticides. In addition, there is a lot of energy needed for transport and packing material. The counter-current of globalization – local cultivation, production and consumption of food and beverages – wins ground fast among entrepreneurs and consumers, partly as a result of the international Slow Food movement and the growing awareness of consumers regarding food safety and sustainability. Time to unite both worlds in one event, starting from the base of food production: the ingredients industry.
