In the November newsletter, the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP) gives an update on the Agrofood Broker of the Year Award, presents reports and workshops conclusions, and lists Knowledge Portal items and Events relevant to Food and Nutrition Security professionals.
The nomination round for the Agrofood Broker of the Year Award 2018 was closed on November 19, 2018. The Platform received eleven nominations which the jury members are now evaluating.
