20 years ago the lines between “Big Food” and food advocates were clear. But today, with the changing landscape of food and consumer shift toward more sustainability and transparency, companies are changing. Food advocates can be found at various large companies. Smaller advocacy groups are more open to working with these larger companies. What is happening – and what does it mean for our food supply?
The Change Food Fest “Growing the Good Food Movement” will explore topics surrounding this change – from how business is changing to companies who are doing it right – to people who are creating massive change without the billions of dollars of investment money going into startups. Come explore the new food movement with us.
And during the full day, we will celebrate food. Lots and lots of food!
The Change Food Fest will take place in New York City on November 12 and 13, 2016. We will explore and celebrate change happening in the food system. Rather than simply talk about problems, we will actively look at solutions that are leading us to the sustainable food system we wish to see. Our focus will be on both real and visionary solutions.
