The future of food and building a sustainable supply chain

When:  Oct 10, 2023 from 18:30 to 20:30 (UTC)
Associated with  Sustainability Community

This is an in-person networking and knowledge sharing opportunity organised by CFA UK’s Sustainability Community

Are you working in venture capital, asset management or consultancy - if so, how aware are you of the challenges in future food security and supply chain? It may feel like an insurmountable challenge, however with innovation and awareness of the opportunities, there is a pivotal role for investors. 

Hear from a panel of experts who will provide insights into market opportunities and trends for the climate-smart food sector: 

  • Food Waste Reduction: Understand the scale of food waste in our supply chains and become aware of how we, as consumers, can help to address this. Speakers will highlight a working example from a UK charity who connect surplus food to charities and schools to healthy meals and help the most vulnerable people in our society, reducing not only waste but improving companies' sustainability practices. 
  • Innovation in Bio-Based Products: Understand the current investments and best practices around sustainable agriculture, with some examples of innovative products addressing climate change. 
  • Vertical Farming: Recognise the role that vertical farming can play in making agriculture more sustainable, including through lowering carbon emissions and water saving.  

Join us to learn how investors can support and promote climate smart-food solutions through guiding allocation of capital and financial resources to accelerate this transition.
