When GFIA (Global Forum for Innovation in Agricultre) was launched in 2014 at the invitation of the Abu Dhabi government, it leveraged partnerships with 40 powerful organisations including the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank, that wanted a platform to show the world how technology gives us the only real chance of feeding nine billion people without destroying the environment.
Now an internationally acclaimed annual event in Abu Dhabi, GFIA is the world's largest showcase of sustainable agriculture innovations. It is not only a forum for stakeholders to discuss policy, strategy and solutions for a food secure future, but hosts a large exhibition where suppliers can meet thousands of farmers and procurement managers right along the value chain.
The GFIA team that delivered the largest agriculture event in the Middle East in 2016 will be bringing GFIA Europe to the Netherlands for the first time from 9–10 May 2017.
Koppert will be present on the exhibition floor.
