World Food Day 2020

FAO's slogan for World Food Day 2020 is "Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. -- Our actions are our future." And yet, the world is beset by geopolitical trade wars, COVID-19, an economic slump, and climate change.  Not exactly the kind of togetherness we need for food security!

GIC in International Import-Export Event Nov 18-20, 2020



GIC Group, a 40-year old international agribusiness company, is pleased to join other expert presenters to discuss agricultural trade opportunities for Russia worldwide. Rick Gilmore, President/CEO, commented, “Russia is well-placed to resume its historic role as a ‘global breadbasket’.” My presentations in the three sessions will focus on critical developments in the international grain trade; Russia’s international role as a competitive grain supplier in the “new normal” post COVID-19 world; and GIC recommended growth strategies and services.

GIC provides agribusiness companies and public sector clients with an integrated approach to problem solving and a roadmap for profit maximization and future growth. We combine research with analysis; policy and strategic planning with technology applications, marketing, and decision-making; and finance and investment with raising capital. GIC offers services with a specialization in the grain trade from our network of global offices and partnerships.

Gilmore invited participants to send questions in advance of the event: “There is always a risk in over-simplification so questions from listeners will enable me to drill down to the key issues in successful international grain transactions. Please refer to our website: www.gicgroup.com and the website of our non-profit organization, GFSF:  www.globalfoodsafetyforum.org and direct your inquiries to: rickgilmore@gicgroup.com . “ For further information on the event, please refer to www.importexport.group/autumneng

The Climate Trust writes that the CFTC report "...could mark a turning point. Its commissioning and conclusion signals an increased awareness of the potentially ruinous financial consequences of failing to address climate change." Here are a few companies who signed on to the report: Dairy Farmers of America, Environmental Defense Fund, J.P.Morgan Chase, Vanguard, Citigroup, & Cargill. Now that's scary!

Climate Change and Food Safety


FAO and WHO have both warned of the impact of climate change on food safety. We're in Food Safety Month right now -- but every month is climate change.  Resilient food systems, sustainable farming, and targeted mitigation are long-term prerequisites.
