15.12.2019 : Losses & Waste

Food Losses and Food Waste have been target of this Site and Global Green University already for many years. Prof.Hallier published the results of a foodrecovery-EU-project in print and e-book-version : "Food Waste Management" (LINK: e-Learning). Dr.Alina Pukhovskaya working as an ERA-trainee in that project later wrote her PhD about the Food Bank Mexico.

Now an international consortium of collaborators is working on a document of ten interventions to scale the impact to reduce food losses and food-waste. The aim is to halve losses and waste by 2030.

"At the present time we have a renaissance of the fact-files about the limits of growth and the urgent need to optimize economics,ecology and ethics for a global house of harmony. On the other hand we have the disappointment about politics seeing that 50 years (half a century) have passed without any major changes for healing our world and common spiritual values. Prof. Maathari with her fights for better life should be a light-house for academia and decision-makers" Prof.Dr.Hallier said in his laudatio.
 



15.10.2019 : Ethical Payment

In 1972 when Bernd Hallier was in Stellenbosch/Cape Province as an AIESEC-student exchange his South African partner was Roger Chennels from Eshowe/Natal - both having students' dreams about the future of Africa. It was still the time of Apartheit (separation between the white and coloured people as the collage of the 72-pics shows) , but the farm of the Chennels family was a kind of "free zone area" where white Liberals, Churchmen and Zulu-tribe-heads met. Roger Chennels continued the spirit of his father Guy and became a lawyer : fighting for the underpriviledged people.

It is worth mentioning that after the change of the political system in the week when in 2019 the South African "all-coloured team" was becoming World Champion in Rugby for the first time: BBC was sending a report about Ethical Payment in the RooibosTea Industry with the following statement of Roger Chennels :"In short over 10 years we have negotiated a world first benefit sharing agreement under the Nagoya Protocol of the CBD which gives to the San and Khoi indigenous peoples a 1.5% royalty in respect of each kg of Rooibos processed, in acknowledgement of their traditional knowledge that contributed towards the Rooibos industry".
 



15.09.2019 : ANUGA

ANUGA is the abbreviation of the German heading "Allgemeine Nahrungs- und Genussmittel-Ausstellung" - shortly translated : exhibition for food products . It was founded in 1919 in Stuttgart, followed in the next years by exhibitions in Munich, Hannover, Berlin and Magdeburg. In 1924 it moved to Cologne, which was also a political demonstration as at that time the Cologne area was separated after World War I from the rest of Germany. In fact it remained in that town uptill today.

After World War II the fair was run bi-annually. Since 2003 ANUGA was labelled "10 special shows under one roof" aiming to promote ten food segments like "milk-products", "meat". In 2017 a total of 7400 companies from 107 countries exhibited at ANUGA - being visited by 165 000 food specialists from 198 countries. In 2017 also at ANUGA the special Site www.european-retail-academy.org/TUN was launched as a Thematic University Network to promote standards for food and food education.
