A presentation by the 1818 Society Agriculture and Rural Development Thematic Group
The current global food system is transforming at a pace never seen before. Some novel products like plant-based meat are already in the market while others, like cell-cultured meat, are making fast progress. Efforts to produce food through vertical farming, microbial fermentation, and ocean farming are also underway. The Agriculture and Rural Development Thematic team of the 1818 Society will sponsor a presentation on this subject by former World Bank Colleague, Jitendra Srivastava in collaboration with Shannon Theobald, a well-known alternate protein strategist. They will explore key drivers shaping the future of food, how these rapidly evolving technologies are poised to make a significant impact on the food industry towards meeting changing consumer requirements. They will also bring up the need to bridge the gap between startups, corporations,, international development organizations, governments, and consumers in creating a sustainable food system using novel technologies.
