Keynote speaker: We're delighted to announce that the speaker at our March Food Business Breakfast will be Jack Bobo.

With over 20 years of experience in food systems, food technology, food policy, consumer behaviour, science communication, and international relations, Jack currently serves as the Centre Lead and Director at the University of Nottingham’s Food Systems Institute. His insights on global food challenges are highly sought after globally, emphasizing the critical need for transformative changes in our food systems to support a burgeoning population and our increasingly delicate Earth.

“Can Food and Agriculture Save the Planet... Before They Destroy It?”v

In a world grappling with the pressing need to ramp up food production for its expanding populace, the question arises: how can we achieve this with finite resources, and what transformative shifts are required in the sector to rise to this monumental challenge?

Jack’s talk will delve into the intricate balance of enhancing food production and distribution while minimizing resource use and maximizing technological innovations. While scepticism often clouds the public's view of the agri-food sector — and perhaps the sector's self-perception too — there's a wealth of exceptional work being done. The goal is clear: to amplify these efforts and continuously improve.

Jack's presentation promises to be both engaging and entertaining, as he explores the pivotal issues we face and discusses potential strategies and innovations leading towards a more robust and sustainable global food production system.
