Event Description

      Ag & Food Policy Summit (Draft Agenda)

The Ag and Food Policy Summit is an educational event organized by Agri-Pulse, the nation’s leading media company for farm and food policy information. The event will be held at the National Press Club on March 18, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a reception to follow at the same location.

Our 2019 theme: Shaping Farm and Food Policy Strategies for 2040. Investors are pouring billions of dollars into new agricultural and food startups at the same time as some of the more traditional players are going through consolidations and retirements. Who will survive and thrive? What will the food production and consumption landscape look like over 20 years from now as we work to feed over 9 billion people in a sustainable fashion? How should farm, food and rural policies be modified to facilitate these changes?
