Marlin Network's inaugural Food2053 Conference is set for Oct. 21-23 in San Francisco's Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel.
The aggregated food supply conference will focus on the industry's future, specifically approaching the question, "How will we nutritiously, responsibly and profitably continue to feed the world population in the future?"
In the next 40 years, world population is set to breach 9 billion people.
"This is the first conference of its kind — gathering people who have the power to create change from across the food spectrum to discuss the future of food," said Doug Austin, senior vice president of growth and innovation at Marlin Network. "Our goal is to begin shaping the future of food by focusing on the consumer first. We need real actionable solutions to feed the growing population of tomorrow in a way that everyone can feel good about."
Designed for CEOs and leaders, Food2053 will gather experts in the food industry, from agriculture and food manufacturing to grocery and foodservice.
