15.03.2017 : Macro Economic Impacts

Asia and Africa will determine the future shape of the world tremendiously Prof.Dr.B.Hallier stated in a Retail Conference in Mumbai/India. Due to the different growth of population and the gap of exchange rates between the continents of Asia/Africa versus Europe/Northern America there will be major uncontrolled migrations of capital, jobs and physical human resources ( very often based on speculation ) - as well as impacts onto the envirionments globally. Unfortunately Governments are not yet prepared to understand the impact of the present changes from national economies to global economies (more : Link Mumbai).

Preparing a Nairobi/Kenya Conference about Postharvest Optimization (Link) in the end of March 2017 Hallier is asking for engagement for a Global House of Harmony within the trio Economics, Ecology and Ethics ( see also www.european-retail-academy.org/ERM). Goals of the 70ies of the last century to support the development in Africa have to be revived and to be fulfilled he demands.

15.02.2017: Challenge Food Waste

In the beginning of the 21st century due to global mass distribution the world is divided into countries with affluent society and poor countries where 80 percent of the children suffer from hunger. The explosion of population numbers will widen this gap - in the year 2050 about 40 percent more food is needed! If production at the best would keep its present volume, the prices for food will increase and the poorest of the poor will suffer even more. Research about the food distribution shows that at the moment nearly the same rate of food products is wasted as crop on the fields, due to insufficient storing and transportation, lack of processing, within the distribution and at the consumer level. Theoretically the gap between available food and demand could be closed by a better transfer of know-how and a change of consumer habits.

The first African Postharvest Congress organized under the leadership of the University of Nairobi/Kenya (Web Page) will bring together worldwide experts of the agriculture, processing, and total supply chain to work on solutions of this problem. The exhibition of the IKV-Club of international artists (Web Page) in the Museum of Nairobi wants to support the awareness for Food Waste as a challenge by joint exhibits of African and German artists. Moreover, a painting session with children of the Shangilia-slum is planned.
