2015 JBF Food Conference
The Future of Food: How Much Science and Technology Do We Need?
October 19 & 20, NYC


What—and how—do we feed the future? This question is asked over and over again as we contemplate the health of our society and our planet.

Building on the themes from the 2014 James Beard Foundation Food Conference, which focused on prescriptions for a healthier diet, this year we'll explore the ideas, innovations, idiosyncrasies, and motivations behind the important role that science and technology play. But what—and where—are the limits?

Join us as we explore these ideas with top researchers, food entrepreneurs, farmers, biologists, activists, chefs, writers…and you.

“The James Beard Foundation Food Conference was a catalyst for realizing the necessity to capitalize on intelligent, committed entrepreneurs in the food system by formally creating a venture fund to meet the growing needs of this good food sector.” 

—Jason Ingle, Founder, Closed Loop Capital and Greener Partners
