The Fédération Nationale du Secteur Agricole (FNSA) and Fairfood International are organising a conference in Agadir, Morocco on 24 February 2016. The topic is improving working conditions in global food chains, with a special focus on the Moroccan agricultural sector:
“Improving working conditions in global food chains: examples of good practices, innovation and collaboration and how to face the challenges ahead”
In this conference, the Moroccan food industry and experts in a wide variety of fields will be brought together to discuss examples of projects that involve inclusion and collaboration and where participants have found innovative ways of solving problems. We will also take a closer look at Fairfood and the FNSA’s tomato project in Morocco.
See the detailed programme below.
Companies, NGOs, trade unions, government officials, academics and workers from all over the world will join the conference. These include the President of the Souss Massa region, representatives from the regional authorities, as well as from the Moroccan Ministries of Labour and Agriculture, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers from Florida (USA) and the Libera Terra association from Italy. They will share their experiences and discuss possibilities for improving conditions in the agri-business sector, both in Morocco and abroad.
