Description

Decreasing Food Waste-From Farm to Market

Join us for a discussion about preventing crop spoilage and reducing food waste, which will be critical to feeding a world population projected to grow to 10 billion people by 2050. We will discuss how improved disease and pest resilience in major staple crops can preserve yield in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere. We will also discuss initiatives to decrease loss and waste in the processing, transportation, storage, and sale of food products throughout the world, but starting here in St. Louis. Panelists will be Joanie Taylor, Director of Consumer Affairs & Community Relations, Schnuck Markets, Inc. and Becky Bart, Ph.D., Assistant Member, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.

This edition of Conversations will be moderated by Chip Lerwick, Managing Director, Aon and Vice-Chair of the Danforth Leadership Council.

5:15 PM: Networking Reception in the McDonnell International Gallery
6:00 - 7:00 PM: Conversation in the AT&T Auditorium
