Green Week

Actually Berlin’s the most interesting place for all foodies duringe the world’s biggest fair for food, agriculture and horticulture:
Following it’s own description the International Green Week (IGW) is a one-of-a-kind international exhibition for the food, agricultural, and horticultural industries. Established in 1926 it ’s taking place for the 77th time in 2012. Producers from all over the world use the IGW to test-market food and luxury items and establish a brand image. Exhibitors often organize around national, regional, or product themes. Presentations feature fresh produce, fish, meats, and dairy products. These combine with a vast selection of international wine, beer, and spirits specialties, to satisfy every culinary palate. Right in line with consumer trends, the IGW also includes direct agricultural sales and the BIO MARKT organic products section.

The IGW also features commercial and non-commercial agricultural, forestry, and landscaping exhibits. Changing annual themes typically include such topics as renewable resources or scientific livestock breeding and production. These trade show elements are of particular interest to those involved in the developing markets of central and eastern Europe.

En passant it’s an occasion to think about new topics for next series of food photography – topics, actual policy and market interests, what might be interesting for food consumers – and as a consequence for a food photographer during this year 2012? Checking the past works and portfolio – it seemt a nice idea to make a new video with a “green point of view” --somehow. More – soon.
