COVID-19 & The Future of Food:

Introduction: Our businesses and lifestyles have changed radically in recent months in the shadow of COVID-19 and all of us are adapting to new emerging patterns in the industries we serve. COVID-19 has changed the traditional ways we conduct business and interrupted whole supply chains. This crisis is forcing us to re-think food security, question the concept of from farm to fork and even sustainable food innovation.

This webinar series brings together a wide array of thought leaders discussing our current reality and a possible path to a post-COVID-19 world in food and innovation.
