as you all know, we had already announced that the next WGS would take place in Rome in November 2020 and we had started working towards that goal. .. Read more October 2021, always in Rome, in the same location. The Whole Grain Summit (WGS) is a very focused event and a regularly organised international meeting (started in 2001, last meeting in Vienna in 2017) that encourages all sectors, disciplines and cultures to convene, collaborate and work towards understanding why and how to increase consumption of whole grain (WG) foods possibly through collective solutions. For this purpose, all stakeholders in the whole grains food chains are called to contribute, from plant and food scientists to health experts, food manufacturers and marketers, government regulators, communicators, focusing on the local and the international level. This 2021 WGS aims at building on past experience to update current knowledge worldwide on wholegrains and to prioritise interests, focus and leverage people, resources and funding around new models, approaches and initiatives within the Food System that help increasing WG intake in all sectors of the population. By inviting internationally renowned scientists as well as experts who shape the whole grain Food System (infrastructure) to participate, we collectively harness and directly apply the current body of biological and behavioural research & technology. This is also accomplished by strategically focusing on the development of new tools, methods, and approaches that fill critical gaps in the WG Food System, to enhance WG availability, accessibility and consumption, safeguarding sustainability and consumers’ health.
