15.06.2020 : Innovation/Penetration

In 1994/96 Prof.Dr.Hallier initiated as an anti-crisis response to the British Cow Desease (BSE) in the AgriBusiness the German tracing/ tracking system Orgainvent for cows and beef which later was the basis for EU-regulations ( see pic "From Crisis to Competence" and Link "Tils Cutting House"). 25 years later the historic review and proposals for application within Developing Economies in the Reader about Animal Sourced Food published by Prof. Dr. I.M.Khan from the University of Faisalabad/Pakistan shows how long global penetration of innovation in the food chain needs !

In 2020 Prof.Hallier demands as a response to COVID-19 to add to the standards of global food distribution an enlargement of the focus HACCP and also a Chapter about Social Welfare for Labour : "We are all in a Responsibility Chain in global suppply : we cannot claim targets for animal welfare while neglecting the human beings" he stated demanding an equilibrium between Economics, Ecology and Ethics.

In October 2017 the Thematic University Network (Food) was started at the ANUGA Exhibition in Cologne as a manifest for blended learning about standards along the distribution from farm to fork. The former ERA-trainee Dr. Alina Pukhovskaya designed the www.european-retail-academy.org/TUN as a multi-lingual option for global training.

Now Violena Nencheva from Bulgaria starts her ERA-training by pushing the Spanish TUN-Site ; her next step in applied sciences would be Middle- or South America. Language is important not only for the flow of product distribution but also for the knowledge distribution in a globalizing world as Prof.Dr.Hallier stated when welcoming Violena Nencheva.
 



15.04.2020 : COVID-19 Challenge

The CREATIVITY of retail can be seen according to Prof.Dr.Hallier in a lot of short-term initiatives to protect consumers in the food business against COVID-19. Some of the best practices will become teaching material for blended learning at this Site in one of the next News-editions.

Part of the overall effort to contain the spread of the virus had been on the level with trading partners to guarantee supplies despite panic buying; instore-operations had been partly re-arranged ; own personnel had to be educated for the new situation and consumers to be instructed to change shopping-behavior; e-commerce had been speeded up to reduce risks for people better to stay at home. Prof Hallier gives a lot of credit-points to the "Heroes of Supply".
 



10.03.2020 : Packaging Competence

Mass Production for consumer-goods is only possible by pre-packaging of industry. It is worth to mention according to Prof.Dr.Hallier that in Germany in context of the change of life-style after World War II in 1957 the Institute of Self-Service/ISB (today EHI) was founded to standardize within a dialogue with the branded goods - and package-industry solutions for the new store-formats "supermarkets". Examples of that meanwhile 60 years existing work-shop are publications like technical demands for one-way package or multi-trip.

In 1958 the packaging and machine sector founded the fair "Interpack" - followed in 1966 by the "EuroShop" exhibition of the retail institute : both today world-leaders of competence in their sectors at the Duesseldorf Fair Ground and show-cases for Applied Sciences. "The national GNP is determined by the amount of practical results from Research" Prof.Hallier claims.
 



10.02.2020 : Food Availability

Environmental Challenges like the Climate Change as well as growing Egoism in national Economies - as seen lately in the Corona crisis - will increase according to Prof.Dr.Hallier the gap between the rich and the poor: in individual economies and in the worldwide competition. Food Availability will become one of the social battlefields in the next decades.

As ERA-trainee Dr. Alina Pukhovskaya looked into buying habits in affluent countries versus increasing demand of poorer populations for EU-publication about Food Waste (See eBook). Later she expanded the topic and analyzed in her PhD research at CIRCLE International/Vitez University the case of the Mexican Food Bank (See Publication). According to Prof.Hallier this project should be enlarged by the Global Green University to further countries: also to be customized to other cultural habits/needs around the globe.
