We are delighted to invite you to join our virtual policy roundtable, 'Whole Grains: A Game Changer for Public and Planetary Health – Can the Slovenian experience inspire Europe to address its leading dietary risk factor? ' on 9 November 2021 from 14:00 to 15:55 (CET).
Organised by the WholEUGrain project partner, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia - Chamber of Agricultural and Food Enterprises (CCIS-CAFE) and the Whole Grain Initiative, the roundtable will bring together high-level speakers, including policymakers, academics, healthcare professionals and patient representatives, to discuss whole grains as a key component of healthy and sustainable diets, and how policy initiatives, underpinned by rigorous science, can help to increase the alarmingly low levels of whole grain intake in Europe. As a thematic meeting held during the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU and amid the rollout of the new Farm to Fork Strategy of the European Commission, the event will focus on the Slovenian experience in driving decisive action to address this public health issue across other EU Member States. Furthermore, the roundtable will also be an inspiring occasion for participants from other regions of the world to find solutions to similar problem via the exchange of best practices and knowledge.
