Germany: Onion Forum from 18 - 19 January 2018 in Peine

The onion forum, which was organized for the third time by the Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft and the Rheinischer Landwirtschafts-Verlag, will take place at the beginning of next year, for the first time in the conveniently located town of Peine.

With everything revolving around onions for two days -on January 18 and 19 2018-, hardly any aspects relating to the cultivation and marketing of the third most popular vegetable among German consumers after tomatoes and carrots will remain unexplained: the assortment and market development both at home and abroad will be discussed, and the views of the food retail trade on onion marketing will not be lacking.

The program:
