Consumers are waking up to what's in their food and where and how it was made. They're paying more attention to the impact of that food on people and planet—and rewarding those companies that do better with their purchases. Innovations throughout the value chain are disrupting even the most modern of food inventions and creating the potential for significant, long-term change. Food technologies, artificial intelligence, nutrition science, and alternative business and ownership models are creating a new landscape for suppliers, manufacturers, brands, retailers, and investors.
These innovations are here—and to help steward food toward a healthier, more regenerative and equitable future, we need to understand and steward these innovations.
The New Hope Innovation Experience, part of Natural Products Expo East, is your place to learn about, engage with, taste, discuss, and even challenge the newest innovations that have potential to gain ground with businesses and consumers and ultimately change the world.
Participants will emerge from this event armed with a greater understanding of the new technologies, business models and philosophies that will enable them to navigate the increasingly complicated food value chain - with an eye toward what might be most beneficial for people and planet today and tomorrow.
Retail and food service buyers will discover new products, gain access to product and company details that is too often difficult to find, and leave better understanding what new innovations best fit with their specific needs and values.
