On 19-20 January 2023, FoodLAND is celebrating its third Annual Meeting, which is taking place physically for the first time. Zanzibar, Tanzania is where the meeting is being hosted, organised by the FoodLAND partner Sokoine University of Agriculture.

During the first day of the meeting, plenary and parallel sessions have been combined, where partners are sharing information about all the work carried out so far in their own countries and the results that they have started to reach. Topics such as the surveys and experimental actions conducted with urban consumers and consumers’ nutritional status and imbalances have been shared with all partners, as well as the results that are expected to be published in scientific journals; besides, thematic parallel tables have been arranged to discuss different technological innovations for agriculture, processing and packaging.

Very vivid discussions have taken place during the meeting, and all partners underlined the value of meeting physically.
