Innovating the Food System and Supply Chain
Please join Newlab’s Vice President of Products and Programs, Shaina Horowitz, as she moderates a conversation between Starbucks, Wegmans, FAI Farms, and RethinkX around what’s in store for the future the food and agriculture space.
The global food system is, and always has been, in a state of rapid change. Now more than ever, innovation drives how we grow, distribute, and eat food. Rural agricultural production, urban distribution, the direct-to-consumer revolution, plant-based meat alternatives, and disruptions from the current health crisis, have all revealed insights, opportunities, and challenges around food and agriculture.
Our panelists will discuss how they rethink traditional methods and approaches to food production and distribution and explore how innovative strategies and emerging technology can impart resilience and agility across the food system and supply chain.
Featuring special guests:
– Jacquelyn Howard, VP of Global Supply Chain, Starbucks
– Bill Strassburg, Special Projects, Wegmans
– Øisten Thorsen, Farms Director, FAI Farms
– Catherine Tubb, Senior Analyst, RethinkX
