The students of the master in “Sustainable Food Systems” traveled to Italy for a study trip to agro-food industries in the region of Parma and Turin.

These four days, from 23rd to 26th September, also provided the opportunity to create links within the group of students of different nationalities.

The efforts devoted to sustainable development in the company, as guarantees of sustainability, affect all facets of the agri-food industries.

From dairy, Parmigiano Reggiano, Parma ham (PDO) to international brand LAVAZZA through the Dallagiovanna flour mill, each industry faces many challenges.

These companies share in common the requirement of customer and consumer satisfaction, economic and social performance and of course the love of their respective businesses.

This confrontation to the real world of sustainable enterprise and the challenges of sustainability provides a basis for observation and reflection for the exchanges and works that are committed from now on in the 5th year specialized programme and master in « Sustainable Food Systems ».
