The food and agribusiness industries are facing unprecedented change: consumer tastes and preferences are shifting, technology is upending entrenched business models and climate change is altering production. Against this backdrop, the world's population is expected to grow by over 2 billion people during the next three decades. This panel will explore how the food and agriculture industries can overcome these challenges. Questions to be addressed:
- What are the largest challenges facing the food and agribusiness industries, and are they prepared to meet them?
- Can the existing food and agriculture supply chain meet changing dietary needs and preferences? What role can technology play?
- What are the most meaningful shifts in consumer tastes and preferences and what do they mean for the food and agriculture industry?
