Over 122 million people in Europe are hungry, and just in Serbia 250.000 tons of food is thrown away. On the other side, Belgrade’s gastro scene is growing, and it’s not lagging behind the inventiveness compared to other European capitals. Food is simultaniously one of the biggest global challenges to sustainability and a new medium of communication. Through food and its flavours we meet new cultures, destinations and people. Even more importantly, with a correct approach to food we help preserve our planet.
Mikser Festival 2019 will connect local gastronomic creativity with societal challenges and help start the debate about food surplus, sustainable diets and solutions for the future. Content related to food will be present in diverse formats and on several locations – from a panel discussion at the Shift conference, to Expo exhibitors and Belgrade Market of Sustainable Food.
