According to a press release via Clarence House The Prince of Wales was invited to participate in the forum:
“…by his cousin, His Serene Highness Prince Philipp of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, in recognition of the work by The Prince of Wales’s International Sustainability Unit. The 2013 Langenburg Forum on Regional Food Security brings together individuals and organizations from across the food industry as well as environmental and consumer groups, government representatives, food security and international agriculture experts.
Debates during the forum addressed the issue of the structure of food supply chains and exploring how they could be adapted to help return greater value back into food systems. Participants discussed ways to ensure the sustainability and the quality of food through the development of more local food supply as well as the diverse local agricultures on which they depend.”
After participating in a roundtable discussion “…on the opportunities to enhance local food systems…” the prince attended a reception with participants of today’s forum.
