【DE】New VertiFarm fair invites trading companies to Retail Day

On the 28th September 2022, Messe Dortmund, the climate protection offensive of the Handelsverband Deutschland (HDE) and the Handelsverband NRW Westfalen-Münsterland will organize a Retail Day as part of the new international trade fair VertiFarm.

 

From 27th to 29th September 2022, the trade fair premiere of VertiFarm, the international trade fair for innovative and sustainable cultivation and breeding methods of the future, will take place at Messe Dortmund. In addition to the ideal partner, the Association for Vertical Farming (AVF), DLG could also be won over as a partner for this year’s framework program for the transformation of agriculture.

 

Dortmund – Visitors to the new VertiFarm, the international trade fair for innovative and sustainable cultivation and breeding methods of the future, expect a comprehensive international performance show as well as a wide-ranging supporting program: Retail companies can attend Retail Day on the 28th. September 2022 from 11 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. to inform more about innovations and trends, market situation and business models as well as financing options and consumer expectations.

 

VertiFarm 2022 shows a wide range of solutions, new products and systems for sustainably and locally produced food. In view of vulnerable supply chains and rising energy prices, this will become increasingly important in the future, especially for food retail. What are current obstacles? What potential do the concepts have? What framework conditions must be created? Retail companies will receive answers at Retail Day with numerous top-class speakers and practical examples.

 

Use sustainability as an opportunity

 

Jelena Nikolic, project manager climate protection offensive of the Handelsverband Deutschland and co-organizer of the Retail Day 2022, explains: “Climate and resource protection, energy efficiency and sustainability are priority topics that trade faces. With Retail Day at the new VertiFarm trade fair, we offer trading companies an information event where they can find out about this new industry and get to know economic benefits for their companies.”

 

Markus Kaluza, Head of Public Relations & Project Management Handelsverband Nordrhein-Westfalen Westfalen-Münsterland e.V. and also organizer of Retail Day, sees it similarly: “Energy consumption and generation is an important topic for the retail trade. The trade organization supports its member companies on their way to a climate-friendly future. The cultivation of fresh food in the immediate vicinity of densely populated conurbations is a way in which retailers can make a sustainable and economical contribution to climate protection while convincing customers of themselves. Trading companies can experience in all its facets at the new trade fair what forward-looking potential vertical farming offers.”
