Session 4 – International Development

While the global population is expected to reach 10 billion individuals by 2050, bread, as one of the most fundamental and traditional forms of human nutrition, has a pivotal role to play. Yet, this strong reality is so far poorly acknowledged amongst international bodies and institutions. Exports and developments beyond their traditional boundaries and types of products is a new reality for a growing number of industrial bakers, as well as the installation of capacity in third countries. This session will pursue AIBI’s objective to further tighten the links between the bakers organisations and operators from the main global regions and pursue their joined aspiration for visibility at international level. Speakers will bring the audience through the cultural aspects of bread consumption in the different regions and related market developments aspects.
