Global Innovations in Scaling and Protecting the World’s Food Supply

If your company produces products or has facilities around the globe, this issue should matter to you.  The United Nations reports that in 2030 the world will require 70% more food to feed its inhabitants.

In Maryland and the surrounding area, we have thought leaders and experts working to solve this problem.  In this session, we will hear about inspiring innovations and partnerships to address food scarcity in our oceans and on land.  We will hear how Google and Oceana partnered on a technology to protect the world’s fish supply, IBM is using blockchain to address challenges in agriculture and how Phillips Seafood is innovating in its supply chain to protect fish.
