Spices&Herbs Global Expo: sustainability, biodiversity and circular economy
Andrea Primavera, president of Fippo underlined: “Medicinal, aromatic plants and spices are increasingly forming an inseparable pair with key words such as health, well-being, advanced nutrition. Not only that: sustainability, green chemistry, biodiversity, circular economy are also concepts that permeate the supply chain of these agricultural productions”.
Primavera also recalled how the markets relating to herbal medicines alone will grow at a rate of between 38% and 53% in the next 5 years, depending on the regions of the world. The current global crisis, made up of socio-political tensions, climate change, reduced access to energy resources, could push the need for low environmental impact products, both for health and well-being, and for technological uses, such as rule has been observed in the past during other crises.

Producing in a sustainable way, guaranteeing product quality and safety, supplying ever new and different industrial segments and above all safeguarding biodiversity and the integrity of the production environments and the populations that derive income from them. These are the many challenges that this sector poses. And they will be the main themes addressed in the second edition of the next show.
