On November 7-8, over 170 senior decision makers of the agriculture investment, technology and agribusiness industries gathered at the Renaissance Toronto Downtown for the sixth edition of the Agriculture 2.0 conference series. Attendees participated in robust discussions on the future trajectory of the global food system, price drivers, and how to best play their hand when entering what for many players is a new asset class.
Sustainability and responsible investments were on the forefront as participants learned about breakthroughs in hydroponics, cultured meat, enabling technologies for small farmers, nutraceuticals, plastics generation from municipal waste, climate change effects on global farmland investments and the future of sustainability metrics in the agrifood supply chain.
Over the course of three days, including the Water 2.0 Investment Summit, management teams presented their proprietary technologies and innovative products in front of prospective investors as well as their peers and colleagues through the 2.0 Venture Fair.
Documents will be available to paid attendees, speakers and guests, through the AgConnect platform beginning November 16.
