The chief executive of the Federation of German Food and Drink Industry has said that Germany "fears" a no deal Brexit calling for clearer plans at a the opening press conference at the Green Week in Berlin on Wednesday.
Christoph Minhoff said everyone in the room at the world's largest food industry, agriculture and horticulture exhibition feared a no-deal Brexit because they "don't need it is uncertainty."
President of the German Farmer's Union, Joachim Rukwied, said he was frightened by Bolsanaro's approval of pesticides that are banned in the EU. The Green Week no longer supports Mercosul, and Rukwied criticised Bolsonaro for giving "statements to consider to permit old pesticides again and also being silent on the topic of rain forest extermination."
Christoph Minhoff continued to predict 2020 food trends, including "environment and climate protection especially and also products that are already newly in the market within the national strategy on reduction and innovation, within the reduction of sugar, fat and salt."
This year's show features the highest number of stands in its 94 year history, 1800 exhibitors from 72 countries. The slogan this year is presented by Croatia, and is "the culture of agriculture." The official opening is January 17 and finishes on 26th.
