As main organizer of the activities of Finland, partner-country of the International Green Week 2019, the Finnish WFO Member Organization, Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners of Finland (MTK), played a key role within the framework of the world’s leading trade fair for agriculture, the food industry and horticulture.
On an exhibition area covering 1,600 square meters, more than 80 Finnish exhibitors, under the slogan “From the Wild”, offered consumers and stakeholders a wide range of expositions, workshops, meetings as well as innovative and high-quality food stands, with a focus on the methods of responsible production of cereals, especially oats products, berry products, drinks and beverages and sustainable animal products.
Among the visitors, also the WFO President, Theo De Jager, and the representative of the European Constituency of WFO, Arnold Puech d'Alissac. They had the opportunity to go around the stands getting inside the agriculture, forestry and fisheries of the EU’s northernmost agricultural country.
It is the first time ever in the history of the fair that a union representing farmers is the main organizer of partner-country activities. May it be the first of many.
