Event Description

Meet us at the Private in Paris for this discussion about organic trade and its underlying - and often misunderstood - ethics. On December 13th, we will center the discussion around flower delivery, how Southern countries are producing most of the cheap flowers you can buy in Europe and the US, and why an organic certification may not be enough.

We will then have lunch and various CEO's, scholars and also local politicians will join the discussion around importation of goods that were produced in a humane manner, the current certifications that exist, and new suggestions regarding future organic/fair trade certifications that would truly create a sustainable market model.

Max Gerard, owner of flower delivery in France will talk about his every day actions as CEO, about the cost of flowers and the particular challenges of delivering bouquets in a country such as France
