A new report involved assessment of 27 EU countries plus the 4 UK nations and highlighted four key areas of transformation needed to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, which is a key component of the Farm to Fork Strategy, part of the European Green Deal,

The Barilla Foundation published the report, with its Head of Research, Dr Marta Antonelli commenting “Food is a powerful lever to improve human and planetary health. The EU is called to take bold action to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable, healthy, inclusive and resilient food system.”

Shrinking salmon sizes threaten world fish trade

Wild salmon under threat by climate change with implications for the global fish trade

Salmon are shrinking in size and scientists are trying to establish the cause – but the consensus is that climate change is the main culprit.

This change in size could impact global fish trade, as consumers in different markets prefer different sizes when it comes to their salmon: in Japan, a smaller fish is favoured but in Europe, bigger fish are popular, especially due to the popularity of smoked salmon.

Editor's Welcome

Welcome to our April newsletter

We’re pleased to confirm that Cool Logistics Middle East, our next online seminar, will take place on June 30 2021. We’re excited to be focusing on this growth region: the food sector is flourishing across the GCC, however the cold chain needs development and investment. There is significant market potential in this area that still relies largely on imported food. Food security is a big issue with many local food production projects taking place.  And with regional food trends such as e-commerce and vertical farming to also consider and discuss, Cool Logistics Middle East on June 30 is a definite date for your diary. We’re open for early registrations using this link here. 

Our most recent online seminar, Containing COVID-19: Containerisation’s Role in Global Vaccine Logistics discussed the potential role for ocean freight in the safe transportation of vaccine logistics, together with the urgent need to ensure vaccination programmes are rolled out for our seafarers and other key logistics workers. If you weren’t able to join us on April 15, you can still register for our event platform where you can watch our seminar content on demand and take advantage of networking with fellow attendees using this link here.

As ever, we share the industry news that has caught our eye recently that you may have missed, including media coverage of our Containing COVID-19 online seminar which you’ll find below.

If there is anything you’d like us to include or cover, please get in touch directly with me at esther@nextlevelinfo.com
