the new and future consumer?

The agri-food landscape is rapidly changing as consumer tastes shift. On November 6-7, 2018, the HORIZON21c Summit brought together an intimate gathering of agri-food leaders to explore The New and Future Consumer and the profound impacts of evolving consumer trends on today’s and tomorrow’s agri-food system.

The summit focused on the opportunities these developments present for the large and diverse agri-food sector throughout Illinois and beyond, and how varied private and public sector entities can leverage collective resources to advance future opportunities.
