About the event

Global beverage sales are estimated at >2 trillion litres per year. Beverages and beverage crops have a massive impact on our world population in terms of employment, income, nutrition and lifestyle and for their therapeutic (relaxation) and social role. They provide an important source of income for the rural population in many developing and developed countries. 

Major crops from which beverages are made include coffee, tea, cacao, fruits, vegetables, cereals, legumes, herbs, and hops. Many other minor plant species are used and have been used throughout the history of mankind. Horticultural plants comprise a major portion of the ingredients for beverages such as coffee, tea, chocolate, wine, beer, ciders, fruit, vegetable and herbal drinks. 

This symposium is the II ISHS (International Society for Horticultural Science) symposium on beverages and beverage crops. We invite all involved in the beverage supply chain to come and be involved in presentations, workshops, discussions and exhibition of products.
