Nepal Food 2021
7 Provincial Dialogues
Working together with local authorities of every province Nepal Food 2021 invites stakeholders along the food supply chain to participate in one day workshops/dialogue.
By bringing together stakeholders from along the entire food supply chain, from growing, processing, preparing, trading to sharing we aim to strengthen, inspire and create new dialogue on sustainable and alternative food systems. Around 25-30 key-participants will join these dialogues in each province.
The workshops will consist of two introductory inputs and a brainstorming session with the participants. By showcasing best-practices from different focus points we want to promote local collaborations and collective responsibility for food security.
On top of the presentations at the workshops, the best practices identified and documented in step-1 will also showcase their products and/or projects. The participants can get the tangible and hands-on understanding of the products and services created by the best practices in their provinces.
Tentative Program Formats
1-day Provincial Workshop will be designed in a dialogical format.
Morning: Introduction to the event and inputs from experts on key topics
Afternoon: Best practices showcase; and group works
Evening: Drafting learnings & way-forward for provincial food systems
NEPAL FOOD Fair & Summit 2021
With the accumulated learnings from engaging with the best practices and organizing 7 provincial dialogues with key stakeholders, we will design the event of Nepal Food Fair & Summit 2021 in such a way that our mission of achieving resilient and sustainable food systems is delivered to wider audiences. During the months between August to November 2021 we will actively engage in preparing this event.
During three days in December 2021, under the moto «growing, preparing, sharing» the first edition of Nepal Food brings together stakeholders from gastronomy, hospitality, farming and production, food entrepreneurs, locals and tourists in an immersive experience.
Nepal Food 2021 will consist of two program parts which take place parallel to each other and give the event its unique character. The fair is designed to attract a broad audience through various formats such as farmers market, food park, tasting, side events, kids’ zone and DIY workshops. The summit with program formats such as kitchen talks, long tables and masterclasses is specifically tailored for the professionals and stakeholders of food industry. Nepal Food 2021 focuses on several main aspects of food and explores them throughout the different program parts.
Nepal Food 2021 not only works to find solutions for better food systems of future but also celebrates the diversity of the Nepalese culinary heritage by bringing together those who grow, process, prepare and share food from different regions of Nepal. Food stands for pleasure, culture, environment and society. Nepal Food gathers actors from the gastronomy, agriculture and production sectors and brings forward the dialogue about culinary culture, innovation in gastronomy and sustainable and respectful growing and processing as well as responsible consumption of food. Nepal Food 2021 is a pilot project and further step to put the culinary diversity of the country on the international map and become an annual event.
