Event Details

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, by the year 2050 the world's population will reach 9.1 billion people. A growing concern is, how do we produce food for this larger, more urban population. Growers, distributors, policy makers, food scientist, quality control agents and many others, all play a vital role in the food system to ensure that food makes it from the farm to your table. Come learn from and network with alumni and professionals about careers within the food system and how you can use your knowledge and skills to feed the world.
