Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy will host from May 1 to October 31, 2015. Over this six-month period more than 140 participating countries and international associations will showcase concrete answers and ideas under the main issue “Feeding the planet – Energy for life”. That means being able to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone, while respecting the Planet and its equilibrium. Expo 2015 will give everyone the opportunity to taste the world’s best dishes, while discovering food and gastronomic traditions of each of the exhibitor countries. The Expo is expecting to welcome over 20 million visitors.
The European Commission is coming up with a special story on wheat and bread: Alex, a farmer, and Sylvia, a scientific researcher, will be the protagonists of the story and help to engage with the public, while explaining that global food security will be achieved through good cooperation between people, science and agriculture, and between geographical regions worldwide. The story will concentrate on the example of wheat and bread underlining the importance of these products in European culture and civilisation. A specific thematic tour involving the pavilions of all member states, will encourage visitors to collect cards of national bread recipes that together will form a collection.
AIBI is happy to announce to be present at EXPO Milano 2015 on 16 October 2015 – The World Bread Day.
