The Forbes AgTech Summit’s event website says:

“Thanks to advancements in automation, blockchain, food safety, genetics and more, the food industry is undergoing rapid transformation. New innovations have revolutionized how food is grown, processed, and eaten; which presents today’s agricultural workforce with a new set of opportunities and challenges. While what it will take to produce 70% more food by 2050 is still to be seen, one thing is for sure—these global advancements will be the driving force behind the future of food. Now in its fifth year, the 2019 Forbes AgTech Summit will convene the world’s preeminent leaders in the space to showcase cutting-edge developments and build solutions to one of the world’s most pressing concerns.”
