The Food System will face unprecedented challenges in this century. It will need to meet the nutritional needs of a growing population, feed an expanding demand for proteins and provide sources of renewable materials. This is against a backdrop of the need to improve the environmental footprint of agriculture and climate change that will strain productivity in many parts of the world and put more pressure on water and land use.


How can farming systems adapt to become more sustainable whilst having the productive capacity to match consumer demand for healthy and sustainable diets? What are the challenges in rural areas compared with cities and how can these be addressed through multi-sectorial collaboration? By engaging key experts and opinion leaders, our aim is to enhance awareness of how we can shape the future of food, and make a lasting impact for generations to come.


It is with great pleasure that we invite you personally to our interactive event on July 6 & 7, 2017 in Vevey, Switzerland. You will join industry and academia representatives, scientists, business leaders, civil society representatives and Nestlé experts from around the globe to envision and inspire future trends and opportunities. You will be able to exchange ideas and thoughts with leading stakeholders, identify collaborative synergies, and gain insight into breakthrough technologies and solutions.


We hope you will join us at this exciting event, where you can enjoy stimulating discussions and help to plant the seeds for the future of food.


Yours sincerely,
