CIBUS OPENS WITH THE MILAN PROTOCOL PROMOTED BY THE BARILLA CENTER FOR FOOD AND NUTRITION FOUNDATION

The Milan Protocol promoted by the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition Foundation will mark the opening of Cibus 2014, the 17th International Food Exhibition.

Minister of Agricultural Policy Martina, Eataly, Bioversity International and WWF are among the endorsers of the Milan Protocol, a global agreement on Food and Nutrition to be signed at Expo Milano 2015 and aiming at making the Civil Society as well as Governments and Institutions aware of three food-related macro-goals in order to ensure a better future to the planet: the reduction of food waste, the introduction of agricultural reforms and the fight against financial speculation and the fight against obesity. Everyone can be actively involved giving contributions to the final version of the Milan Protocol by submitting ideas and indications through the online platform www.milanprotocol.com.
“Our hope is that Milan Expo may represent the opportunity to put food issues in the middle of the international governments agenda” – says Guido Barilla, President of the BCFN Foundation “We wish that Italy will be able to sustain this project playing a leadership role via the Global Accord on Food and Nutrition promotion”.
Cibus inaugural event, titled #MILANPROTOCOL: Actions to improve food and nutrition system will take place on May 5th at 9.30 am, Sala Pietro Barilla. The speakers are:

Guido Barilla, President of the BCFN Foundation
Franco Boni, President of Fiere di Parma

Carlo Petrini, Founder and President of Slow Food
Riccardo Valentini, Director of the Climate Impacts Division of the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change
