10.03.2020 : Packaging Competence

Mass Production for consumer-goods is only possible by pre-packaging of industry. It is worth to mention according to Prof.Dr.Hallier that in Germany in context of the change of life-style after World War II in 1957 the Institute of Self-Service/ISB (today EHI) was founded to standardize within a dialogue with the branded goods - and package-industry solutions for the new store-formats "supermarkets". Examples of that meanwhile 60 years existing work-shop are publications like technical demands for one-way package or multi-trip.


In 1958 the packaging and machine sector founded the fair "Interpack" - followed in 1966 by the "EuroShop" exhibition of the retail institute : both today world-leaders of competence in their sectors at the Duesseldorf Fair Ground and show-cases for Applied Sciences. "The national GNP is determined by the amount of practical results from Research" Prof.Hallier claims.

10.02.2020 : Food Availability

Environmental Challenges like the Climate Change as well as growing Egoism in national Economies - as seen lately in the Corona crisis - will increase according to Prof.Dr.Hallier the gap between the rich and the poor: in individual economies and in the worldwide competition. Food Availability will become one of the social battlefields in the next decades.


As ERA-trainee Dr. Alina Pukhovskaya looked into buying habits in affluent countries versus increasing demand of poorer populations for EU-publication about Food Waste (See eBook). Later she expanded the topic and analyzed in her PhD research at CIRCLE International/Vitez University the case of the Mexican Food Bank (See Publication). According to Prof.Hallier this project should be enlarged by the Global Green University to further countries: also to be customized to other cultural habits/needs around the globe.

Having been involved in the development of Tracing/Tracking and Good Agricultural Practices in the middle of the 90ies by EHI, Orgainvent and EUREPGAP/GLOBALGAP today Prof.Dr.B.Hallier is pushing those tools of applied sciences mainly by the Sites of the European Retail Academy.


"We need a world-wide interdisciplinary communication about the food-standards and standard-setters. Beside exchanges of staff, teachers and students we should use also the tool of Blended Learning for reasons of lower costs. One of those training-platforms has become the Site Thematic University Network(Food)" he stated at ANUGA 2019.

20.10.2019 : International Platform

90 percent of the 7590 exhibitors of ANUGA 2019 did come from 106 countries and even 75 percent of the 170.000 visitors had been from abroad (201 countries). Seeing the many booths and visiting experts from China Prof.Dr. Hallier stated that the revived Silk Road works already bi-polar between Asia and Europe!


Hallier pointed also to the fact that at ANUGA 2017 the Thematic University Network (Food) had been established which is a successful tool to penetrate joint standards for the Total Supply Chain globally. More about the TUN-network :
