DLG – the open network and professional voice
Increasing globalisation in the food industry calls for an informed interdisciplinary dialogue across all sectors and the sharing of knowledge and practical expertise. Through its committees and networks, DLG offers sector-specific platforms where technical work and business go hand in hand.
DLG Competence Centers: Forums for knowledge sharing
Every year DLG organises a number of events for the agricultural and food industry which are aimed at sharing the latest specialist knowledge and developing new solutions. Speakers drawn from both science and industry present their expertise and discuss with participants the challenges facing their sector. This creates a forward-looking, interdisciplinary forum for knowledge exchange between stakeholders from industry, science, government, public authorities and associations. These events focus on innovation, food chain, food technology and food sensory analysis.
DLG exhibitions: Successful platforms for the industry
The DLG organises trade fairs and exhibitions throughout the world for the food and agricultural sectors. These events provide an international arena for presenting topics, trends and strategies, showcasing innovative technologies and products and creating successful business marketplaces.
