Join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation for a forward-looking summit around the future of food.
The World Bank says we’ll need to produce 50% more food by 2050 to meet the growth of the global population. This means producing more food in the next 33 years than we have in the thousands of years since civilization began. How can we do this? What will it take to get there?
During the FOOD FORWARD summit, we'll explore the innovations and emerging technologies that are changing the future of food: autonomous tractors, ground-based sensors, flying drones, vertical farming, new trends in supply chains and infrastructure, and more.
We’ll hear from the startups and big businesses driving these new technologies and trends, learn how they’re being funded, and discover how they’ll be used within the next five years.
Speakers will include Andrew Kennedy of FoodLogiQ, Mike Lee of The Future Market, David Rosenberg of Aerofarms, and Sarah Smith of the Food Futures Lab.
