Thursday: Good Food Financing & Innovation Conference
Our Good Food Financing & Innovation Conference is the event of the year for anyone with a financial or commercial interest in the Good Food sector.
Meet buyers, retailers, wholesalers and distributors and connect with rising farm and food entrepreneurs — all innovating to meet fast-rising consumer demand for delicious food, produced as locally as possible using sustainable, humane and fair practices.
The Good Food Industry Conference addresses the growing markets for Good Food from many unique perspectives. We encourage you to experience them all! Resource, network and buy from more than 80 exhibitors, then enjoy lunch at the Good Food Court.
FamilyFarmed will host a day of samples from local food artisans, workshops, chef demos, and fun learning experiences at the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner! Participants will have a chance to meet Good Food resources, shop exhibitors, buy products, and enjoy lunch at the Good Food Court. More than 100 exhibitors this year!
One of Saturday’s highlights is our popular Urban Farm Bus Tour which visited three new cutting-edge urban farms in 2017.
During the past decade more than 700 leaders in the Good Food movement have spoken at the Good Food Festival & Conference!
We are proud to share this list of all our speakers over the past 12 years. These people are the heart and soul of the Good Food movement, and make this community what it is: a diverse group of farmers, policymakers, innovators, eaters, and advocates working to grow a better food system for us all!
