“We aim at involving women as ambassadors of the Universal Exposition of Milan – she added - because the nutrition is strictly related to the female world”. From this assumption, Expo Milano 2015 will promote a series of initiatives aimed at enhancing the role of women in the nutrition fields. “There’s a close relationship between nutrition issues (health, food security, sustainability) and the professional role of women in the food chain” explained Mrs. Bracco.
