Last Brussels Briefing: Linking food, geography and people

The Brussels Briefing ‘Geography of food: reconnecting with origin in the food system’ was held on 15 May, at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels.
More than 120 participants discussed traditional agricultural products (geographical indications or “GIs”) and other origin marketing tools in the context of ACP countries.

The event had three panels, which featured several prominent industry experts and thought leaders including representatives of the academia, of European institutions (DG Agriculture and Rural Development - European Commission, but also of African and international organizations as the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO), OAPI, WIPO, and Bioversity International,  the CARICOM Secretariat, and the ACP Secretariat.
The discussion touched upon important topics such as: existing global and regional frameworks for protecting geographical indications and traditional products, the Carribean experience in protecting agrifood products, or the leverage of GI potentials in the use of underutilized species.

On Brussels Briefings’ website you have access to several extra material, including all presentations given by the speakers, the video registration of the event, as well as an extensive research on the topic (Reader) and photos.
