As our world continues to grow so do our appetites.  And as we move past the 7 Billion mark in global population, the challenges and even moral dilemmas in the path to feeding everyone are only on the grow and the traditional agriculture industry alone doesn't seem to be the solution.

 

But never before in human history have we been more invested in finding solutions to these challenges.  From the rise of “agriculture 4.0” to the sustainability demands being placed on our largest food processors by consumers, and from the work in the scientific community to build a “better meal” in a lab, to the efforts in developing nations simply to put a meal on the table and beyond, everything is in flux.

 

Of course with massive change comes important questions to consider, and as always, Ensemble has your back.

 

Can the recent promises of the fast food and  CPG industries to meet the demands of healthier and more sustainable diets be realized?

 

​Will we be able to find new ways to feed our growing population as climate change begins to significantly impact agriculture around the globe?

 

​Are "Beyond Meat" and their industry competitors truly a solution with people's best interest in mind or just a marketing ploy.​

 

Has the Canada Food Guide that we grew up with steered us wrong all these years?  

 

And is "GMO" still a 4 letter word in a world where it's becoming one of our most viable paths to global food sustainability?

 

To get your fill of impactful discussions of these questions and more, join us for our first Volume of a new decade as we explore one of the topics that will define our world for the next 10 years and beyond. 

 

We'll be sure to satisfy your hunger for thought provoking conversation and leave you full of opinions on this vital topic.
