IGW DIGITAL 2021
Successful Conclusion to IGW Digital
For the first time in its ninety-five year history, the International Green Week took place as an entirely virtual event. In doing so the world’s leading trade fair for agriculture, the food industry and horticulture set new standards and took to the internet to discuss the latest industry topics. On 20 and 21 January, trade visitors and the general public were able to follow more than 100 contributions on four channels free of charge, whether the topic was animal welfare, climate change, local value chains (from farm to fork) or cooking with algae or insect flour.

Global Forum for Food and Agriculture
‘How to feed the world in times of pandemics and climate change?’ That is the question the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) will be asking. The event will take place parallel with IGW Digital from 18 to 22 January 2021. Next year the GFFA’s focus will be on a virtual dialogue, while established forums and podium discussions will continue to take place. At the GFFA some 2,000 international figures representing politics, business, science and society will debate food and agricultural policy issues.
Future Forum on Rural Development
New forms of work and participation - an opportunity for rural areas’, the Future Forum on Rural Development organised by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture will provide a virtual platform for dialogue, discussion and exchanging knowledge.
At the Startup Days the search will be on for agri-tech and food-tech startups with scalable and market-ready products able to meet UN sustainability targets. At IGW Digital the startups will deliver their pitches to a high-level panel of judges.
Sustainability is also the main focus of the Regional Star Award. The Regional-Star award is presented by the trade magazine Lebensmittel Praxis and the International Green Week for forward-looking concepts emphasising regional production in the categories Innovation, Presentation, Cooperation and Organisation.
