Donau Soja General Assembly & Networking Event 2023

Connecting & collaborating – recap of the General Assembly & Networking Event

On September 12th the annual Donau Soja General Assembly took place in Vienna.

After the morning session for members only, we invited a wider audience to a networking afternoon and dinner with many interesting talks and discussions. We kicked-off the afternoon with an innovative discussion format – a fishbowl discussion. After 15 concise input statements from Donau Soja colleagues, focusing on topics from ‘Servus Super Soya’ through ‘Stop Deforestation’ to ‘Solution’, the fishbowl discussion started, in which each guest had the opportunity to participate.

With plenty of opportunity for networking and socialising in between, we rounded off the evening with two Donau Soja expert talks.  Christoph Müller and Bertalan Kruppa gave interesting insights on current policy topics, the EU deforestation regulation, an update on the soya market and a 2023 harvest outlook.

International Non-GMO Summit 2023

Strengthening and Securing the Non-GMO Market

The first International Non-GMO Summit aims to bring together producers and traders from South America and Europe to share information about the availability and production needs of Non-GMO crops. Retailers and food brands will be in attendance, speaking about their sustainability and deforestation commitments and Non-GMO strategies. Forums like this International Non-GMO Summit are a vital tool in helping to build stable, fair and long-term value chains for sustainably produced crops in Europe and overseas and, therefore, to meet consumer demand and ensure the availability of Non-GMO and conversion-free products.
