Hello! UC Berkeley is organizing a conference on Strategic Perspectives on Innovation in Agrifood Supply Chains: Profitability, Sustainability and Global Change from April 18 - 20, 2017, in Berkeley.


The program is bringing together leading international and US-based industry players such as Mars, Bunge and Woolf Farming, investors such as Better Food Ventures and Agriculture Management and representatives from academia and civil society.  Addressing both developed markets and emerging economies, the program will focus on supply chain innovation by downstream players including retailers, wholesalers and processors and upstream actors including farming companies, input providers and financial institutions. The program will also highlight the role of policy, government and civil society innovation and cover a range of commodities including grains, horticulture, livestock, seafood, cocoa and sugar.


Solidaridad is co-sponsoring the event and can offer some seats at a considerable discount as against the full conference price. Interested participants can email madhyama@solidaridadnetwork.org
