It’s International Grüne Woche (Green Week) in Berlin, the annual global exhibition for the food industry, agriculture and horticulture. And while food has always been the focus of this event, fuel is stealing some of the thunder this year.
Messe Berlin is the company that organizes Green Week and CEO Raimund Hosch welcomed agricultural journalists at the kickoff for the show this week.
International journalist Chuck Zimmerman (my husband) is covering the event and interviewed Hosch, who told him that renewable energy is a growing segment of the show.
