Event Overview

In a year in which the world is set to refocus its attention on cutting carbon emissions, the FT Global Food Systems 2021 will showcase the work of pioneering farmers, agri-food companies, and key stakeholders working in concert to reduce the negative impacts of food production on the environment and society. We will ask what food systems leaders are doing differently to produce growth that is in harmony with the needs of the environment and society, without sacrificing profit.
