Young IFFI Event – Food for Thought

Network Meeting

19 September 2024 | 09:30 - 19:00


Young IFFI Event – Food for Thought

At the Young IFFI Event we will focus on global food systems providing food security to 9 billion people while stretching the natural resources and planetary boundaries. Challenging issues with respect to consumers, industries and supply chains will be addressed from the perspective of the young generation of professionals working in the industry of food ingredients. They are invited to the stage and question the status quo of the way we do business either in commerce, operations or innovation? Questions will be addressed, like: To reduce food related diseases in what way can the food ingredients industry help consumers to make a healthy choice? And questions like: What should be the criteria for the food ingredients industry to develop, produce and market food ingredients affecting health in a positive way? Or questions like: To counter the quest for one green planet, how can the food ingredients industry use her global presence while orchestrating their global supply chains? Young IFFI Event provides a platform for the young generation of professionals in the food ingredients industry, who wish to contribute to a sustainable food system and make this world a greener place.

Young IFFI event 2024

Kadir van Lohuizen

Kadir van Lohuizen (Netherlands, 1963) is a versatile photographer and fimmaker. In recent years Kadir has conducted extensive research into the global food industry. At the start of this research he recorded the complete Dutch food chain: from the high-tech modified seed to the Edam cheese for export. For Food for Thought he looked beyond the Netherlands and traveled all over the world picturing the global food industry: from Kenya to China and from the United States to the Middle East. Recently shown as a VPRO documentary on Dutch television and on display in the Scheepvaartmuseum until January 2025.

Kadir has worked as a photojournalist for national and international media for decades and won several awards. He also documented various conflicts in Africa and elsewhere in the world, but is probably best known for his long-term projects on the seven world rivers, the consequences of rising sea levels, the diamond industry, migration in North and South America and the (bad) way in which six megacities deal with waste.

He won a World Press Photo Award in 2018 with his photo series about waste in world cities. He also won the Silver Camera in 1994, 1997 and 2001. In 2000 and 2002 he served on the jury of the World Press Photo competition and until recently was a member of the Board of Trustees of the World Press Photo Foundation.

Careerwise Generation theater

Careerwise is a training agency specializing in soft skills and leadership programs for young professionals.

There are currently five generations in the workplace; a unique time in history. This is beneficial because each generation comes with different skills and perspectives, but how do you get the most out of all those generations fused together?

Careerwise developed The Big Generation Show to answer this problem.
The show is an interactive corporate theater performance about generational diversity. With one actor from each generation, everyone is included. In an interactive manner, you learn what generations actually are and how you can leverage the benefits of generational diversity every day. The show fosters curiosity, understanding, and respect for diverse backgrounds, leading you towards energetic and innovative collaboration. This way, you harness the power of every generation!
