Event description

The western diet – and the food system that underpins it – is becoming increasingly unsustainable, for the health of humans and the planet. So how do we futureproof the food system to deliver healthier, more sustainable products that nourish our bodies without destroying the environment? Put another way, how can the food industry stop being part of the problem, and become part of the solution?

The 2022 FoodNavigator-USA Summit will explore three themes over three days:

  • November 15: Food Tech in Focus
  • November 16: Food as Medicine
  • November 17: The Circular Economy


On November 15, GFI cultivated meat lead scientist, Elliot Swartz, will join Elaine Watson in a fireside chat to discuss cultivated meat.
