The Herbstmesse is one of the most significant exhibitions for agriculture in Austria and is organised in the most agricultural province of the country. It is organised biannually and alternates with the Agraria fair and took place this year from 6 - 9 September 2018.
In the framework the Austrian Presidency, the department for agriculture and rural development had a stand at the fair. The stand's theme was "From farm to fork, sustainable food for a healthy lifestyle". The EU’s added value in ensuring safe and sustainable food for all European citizens was highlighted in various stand activities and animations.
