Future of Food Forum - January 15, 2020
The Future of Food Forum, sponsored the the UF/IFAS Institute for Sustainable Food Systems, was an intensive and exciting one-day event at the University of Florida. It brought together leading experts, entrepreneurs, researchers, and innovators to look at the future of food with an eye toward 2050.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Louise Fresco, President of Wageningen University in the Netherlands, focused on responsible agriculture and food consumption as crucial to world stability.
In addition, there were four high impact sessions:
- The Innovators – with inventors and entrepreneurs who are shaping the future of food.
- Food from the Land – with panelists discussing new technologies: what will be useful, who will use them, where will they be most useful, and what the impacts will be.
- Food from the Sea – with analysts presenting the state of current seafood systems; predictions for future trends in aquaculture and fisheries.
- Food and Human Well-Being – One Health perspectives were presented on health and food including antimicrobial resistance, foodborne disease, and nutrition. This was an insightful event for anyone who cares about the future of food – from producers to consumers; from researchers to innovators; and from business leaders to policymakers.
At the forum you heard some of the world’s changemakers give their perspective on the future of food systems and what we should be doing now to embrace the innovations and challenges of the future of food.
