The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed serious shortcomings in globalizing agri-food supply chains, from globalization to security, from safety to risk management and from farm to fork.

AgriBusiness Forum 2021 focused on addressing these challenges, boosting the "green" and "digital" transition and assessing climate change impact, in line with the CAP2021-2027 and the EU Recovery Fund strategy.

The AgriBusiness Forum sets an inclusive platform to shape robust, comprehensive and coherent dialogue towards viable, sustainable, traceable and resilient agri-food systems in Greece and the World, in the context of globally and nationally emerging trends and constraints, including the "One Health approach".
