SAI Platform invite its members to SAI Platform’s General Assembly 2015, a ‘must attend’ learning and sharing opportunity offering an exciting menu of interactive meetings, insightful field trips, engaging networking events and effective training workshops.
The focus of the 2015 GA events is “Promoting Farmer Partnerships – The Missing Link in Sustainable Agriculture”. During a one day field trip followed by a one day leading seminar, we will look at the hurdles and drivers for farmers’ adoption of sustainable practices, and identify concrete solutions to achieve positive change for different farm types and sizes. Even if your company doesn’t directly or indirectly source from Brazil, you and your colleagues will learn a great deal and bring back effective solutions applicable to your value chains.
Why Brazil, and why Campinas? SAI Platform’s membership is growing and becoming increasingly global in its reach, and we wanted our venue choice to reflect that. We have looked for a major food producing and consuming country also offering an easily reachable place with a wide variety of farming models and a broad range of agricultural activities (coffee, fruit, livestock, cereal, vegetable and sugar cane) for us to visit and learn from. Campinas offers all that, and more!
For companies interested in joining SAI Platform as a member, we will be happy to host you as an observer.
