Clariant to sponsor Swiss Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015

Clariant’s decision to be a major sponsor of Expo Milano 2015 builds on the success of its participation in the Shanghai Expo in 2010. The Expo is a prestigious global event which combines entertainment, interactive exhibitions and ground-breaking technologies in an intense cultural program designed to educate, share innovation and foster cooperation. Over 20 million visitors are expected at Expo Milano.

This year’s theme is particularly relevant to Clariant. As a specialty chemicals company with a commitment to sustainability, Clariant wants to add value to global challenges such as the world food situation. To address this particular topic, Clariant is working hard to develop solutions that improve fertilizers, crop protection products, food packaging and transportation. It is supporting customers’ efforts to achieve more effective and environmentally-friendly food production and livestock rearing, as well as to extend shelf-life and reduce food waste.

“Expo Milano provides the ideal stage for Clariant to present its achievements, products and innovative solutions for improving global nutrition, as well as its culture and ties to Switzerland, to a broad audience including customers, investors and other stakeholders,” comments Ulrich Ott, Regional Head Europe at Clariant. “As chemical experts we want to bring our experience to the table and contribute our global nutrition knowledge to the issues of our society. We are looking forward to joining other major companies in raising awareness of the need to act.”

Clariant will be located at the Expo Milano Swiss Pavilion in Milan, Italy from May 1 – October 31, 2015.
