Description

Please join CleanTechIQ, alongside Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) & Hobbs & Towne, at the Future Food & Ag Investment Series: Creating More Sustainable Food Systems on Wednesday, April 24th in New York City.

Urbanization, a growing middle class and increasing concerns over food security are all coming together to drive increased consumer demand for healthier and safer foods as well as reducing their consumption of meat.

Major food and agriculture corporates are responding by making investments in more sustainable food products, expanding their product lines, making changes to their supply chain and partnering with innovative startups in order to stay on top of the latest consumer food trends

This forum will bring together 100+ participants including big food corporates, food industry investors, policy makers and top innovators to discuss the most promising sustainable food system innovations, emerging consumer adoption trends & where corporates & investors are making investments.
