Disruption at Every Stage of the Food System

Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM

The Driskill
604 Brazos St

Our modern food supply chain is constantly evolving. From agriculture to manufacturing, from shipping to supply, to retail and consumption, we're seeing disruption and innovation at every stage with no sign of slowing down. In an increasingly digital age, it’s critical that food suppliers stay informed and even ahead of the curve to remain competitive. In this session, panelists representing different points of view in the supply chain will discuss how technology is impacting the way they do business, and how they perceive modern food systems evolving.
