Meetings consolidate food transition in the Lisbon metropolitan area

Production, agri-food processing and distribution, consumption and the recovery of organic food waste will be the four topics addressed at technical meetings, as part of the development of the Strategy for the Food Transition, which will take place at the beginning of September in the Lisbon metropolitan area.

The themed meetings will take place in the Valorsul auditorium in São João da Talha (September 5, on the recovery of organic food waste), the Costa da Caparica tourist office (September 6, on consumption), the auditorium of the Lisbon Region Supply Market in São Julião do Tojal (September 7, on agri-food processing and distribution) and the auditorium of the Palmela Municipal Library (September 8, on production).

The four meetings are organized by the Lisbon Metropolitan Area and the Lisbon and Tagus Valley Regional Coordination and Development Commission, with the collaboration of the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon.

The meetings will be attended by entities that play a leading role in boosting and organizing each of the sectors.

Based on the recently obtained characterization results, the aim is to establish a strategic framework with practical application and a governance model that will enable the strategy to be implemented.
