European Food Summit: the future of food will be brought to the spotlight again in spring 2024
Ljubljana, Slovenia, 25. 5. 2023
The European Food Summit, one of the most important international
events, which has successfully built the future of responsible attitude towards
food for the last few years, and thus leaving a positive mark not only in
Europe but also globally, is returning to Slovenia in spring 2024.
The European Food
Summit, which has been successfully setting milestones in the field of
sustainable food systems for the past four years under the auspices of the
event organiser, Jezeršek Catering, and in partnership with the Slovenian
Tourist Board and Ljubljana Tourism has managed to generate a lot of
interest in Europe as well as globally in just a few years. The co-founder of
the European Food Summit and our best chef, Ana Roš from Hiša Franko,
which boasts two Michelin stars, and the curator of the event, Andrea
Petrini, one of the most powerful men and a great connoisseur of gastronomy
on a global scale, have certainly played a key role in this as curators of the
event. Adding to the visibility and expertise of the symposium, especially in
the field of sustainable food systems, Dr Afton Halloran, a renowned
expert in food systems, was the curator of last year's European Food Symposium.
Martin Jezeršek, the organiser
of the European Food Summit and the CEO of Jezeršek Catering, explains: "In
just a few years, the European Food Summit has grown into one of the most
important events not only in Slovenia but also in Europe and the world. We have
hosted many outstanding individuals who are pushing the boundaries of
sustainable food systems, presented many challenges that call for urgent
change, and learned about many inspiring stories and examples of good practices
that represent the future of sustainable food systems. For example, at last
year's edition, we launched the Common-Sensitarian Diet Manifesto, the
brainchild of more than 20 experts in different fields, which has triggered
some of the positive changes needed to move towards more sustainable food
systems and has been supported by a number of ambassadors and other individuals."
FOOD for FUTURE'S GOOD
change and a shift towards more sustainable food systems have been the subject
of many policies, initiatives and conversations at various levels - at the
state, economy and individual levels – not only in Slovenia and Europe but also
around the world.
European Food Summit is becoming strategically important in the field of
nutrition and needs the partnership of key authorities at the national
and European level for its further development and for the event to be held at
the highest level. This is the only way to move towards the vision of the
European Food Summit becoming the most important international gatheringof all European, and moreover, all global food policymakers, the entire scientific
community on sustainable food systems, representatives of agriculture,
representatives of business and other key stakeholders," explains Martin
The aim of the
event organiser, Jezeršek Catering, which has been steadily following sustainable
principles and pioneering a number of sustainable activities in the catering
sector in Slovenia, and thus successfully building the sustainable image of the
Jezeršek brand, is to make the European Food Summit the leading
international gathering in the field of sustainable food systems, and to
act as a platform for the exchange of good practices, new scientific findings
and raising awareness among the professionals and general public, thus positioningSlovenia as an advanced country in the field of future nutrition.
European Food Summit 2024
With the strong impact
and important guidelines for the future of nutrition that the European Food Summit
has left around the world, the event is returning to Ljubljana in spring 2024. This
is the key to a positive impact, the introduction of sustainable development
and the promotion of unity and progress. Martin Jezeršek sums up: "The
European Food Summit will surely continue to be a source of inspiration,
education and transformation for us all."
It is time for
new knowledge, better habits, inspiration and encouragement for a better and
sustainable future. What we will put on the table in the future will be
revealed at the 2024 spring edition of the European Food Summit.
It is time to bring
more to the table!
