The UN General Assembly designated 2021 the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables (IYFV).
FAO is the lead agency for celebrating the year in collaboration with other relevant organizations and bodies of the United Nations system.
The IYFV 2021 is a unique opportunity to raise awareness on the important role of fruits and vegetables in human nutrition, food security and health and as well in achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals.
On the occasion of the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables (AIFV) proclaimed by the UN General Assembly, Italmercati and the European Food Banks Federation (FEBA) are organising the conference “Fruit and vegetables for human development: do not waste!”.
The event aims to offer insights and concrete examples of good practice on the importance of fruit and vegetables for nutrition and healthy personal development, starting from a child’s early years.
Thanks to distinguished speakers, the theme of recovering food surpluses will be addressed from different points of view in order to increase cooperation with operators in the sector so as to ensure a consumption of 400 grams of fruit and vegetables per day as indicated by the World Health Organization.
