This event will showcase the work of pioneering farmers, agri-food companies, investors, and other key stakeholders around the world whose bold and scalable approaches are reducing the negative impacts of food production on the environment and society. We will ask what food systems leaders and investors are doing differently to produce growth that is in harmony with the needs of the environment and society without sacrificing profit.
How can sufficient funds be unlocked for the shift to sustainable food systems?
How is land use changing to bring it in line with global net-zero targets?
• Game-changing agri-tech
How are Edge computing, automation and AI transforming the outlook for farming and agriculture?
• Green Growth
Investors are focussing more on environmental and social concerns. What are the fastest-growing food and agri-tech segments exciting their interest?
• Regulatory balancing act
As players like Uber and Deliveroo enter a lightly regulated market, how is legislation keeping pace with new developments whilst also playing its part to incentivise innovation?
• Trade & Competitiveness
What does the future shape of global trade look like, and how will flows of food back and forth across the world change? What do consumers want and how will this change?
