The 2023 FoodNavigator-USA Digital Summit will consist of three category focused events split into separate sessions
across the three days.
Each session includes dynamic presentations, fireside chats and panel discussions with stakeholders from across the supply chain.
Day One | Tuesday, November 14, 2023
FOOD TECH IN FOCUS
Food, science & tech – A recipe for sustainable solutions
To feed a global population of 10 billion people by 2050 we need to produce more food in the next 40 years than we have in the past 8,000 years – a seemingly impossible task unless we dramatically change the way food is produced and distributed given half the world’s habitable land is already converted for agriculture. Could rapid advances in technology, from vertical and molecular farming to cellular agriculture and precision fermentation, hold the key? How might AI help optimally produce, process and distribute safe and nutritious food? And what will it take to get consumers – and investors – on board?
Day Two | Wednesday, November 15, 2023
FOOD AS MEDICINE
Healing the health of people and the planet
The White House is throwing its weight behind the concept of ‘food as medicine’ as part of a broader, ambitious goal to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030 so that fewer Americans suffer from diet-related chronic disease. This is opening new paths to market and sales opportunities, as well as inspiring innovative products and business models. But fundamental questions remain about how to define healthy eating, measure its impact, ensure equitable access, and educate – and encourage – consumers to change their diets and lifestyles.
Day Three | Thursday, November 16, 2023
THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Navigating an authentic and transparent path to sustainability
Consumers may be willing to pay more for more sustainable options, but they also are increasingly dubious of – and confused by – the rising number of environmental claims. And they aren’t alone – regulators and enforcement agencies also are watching for greenwashing. By embracing robust sustainability practices, obtaining credible certifications, and effectively communicating genuine efforts in environmental stewardship, the industry can establish a solid foundation of sustainability and build trust among consumers and stakeholders alike.
