Providing a background on the major role of wholesale markets in Europe, this presentation discusses how wholesale markets can play a key role in preventing future pandemics by consolidating and centralizing agricultural production for a region or country, and by demanding detailed information on the origin of the products. Through this presentation, Rungis International Market shared how a global network of modern wholesale markets can facilitate overall oversight, introduction of international hygiene standards, and  cooperation based on the improved sharing of information.
