2021 Trust In Food Symposium to Highlight Trends in Carbon and Climate, Animal Ag and Innovation

February 22, 2021

Lenexa, Kan., (Feb. 22, 2021) Trust In Food, a Farm Journal initiative, hosts this week the annual Trust In Food Symposium. This year’s event – themed Regenerative Reset – will bring together farmers, sustainability executives and conservation leaders to learn from one another and position their businesses to improve environmental stewardship, unlock economic opportunities and advance innovation. A record-setting audience of leaders from across the food value chain, the conservation community and public agencies are registered for the event.

The Symposium – this year held entirely online – is set for midday hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, February 23-25, 2021. The program emphasizes key industry priorities, including carbon and climate change, sustainability in animal agriculture and regenerative farming through innovation. Keynote speakers will include iconic thought leaders, such as Dr. Jonathan Foley of Project Drawdown; Dr. Temple Grandin of Colorado State University; Dr. Frank Mitloehner of the University of California-Davis and Rachel Stroer and Tim Crews of The Land Institute.

“Now is a moment unlike any in recent memory,” said Amy Skoczlas Cole, executive vice president of Trust In Food. “Against this backdrop, our country’s food system – from producers to consumers – are rapidly evolving. How are U.S. farmers and ranchers responding, and what’s ahead for agriculture? Out of the disruption of 2020, can a new system emerge that helps farmers move toward more regenerative practices and add revenue streams from carbon markets and other ecosystem services? Those are the questions our speakers will address, and we look forward to engaging a broad cohort of leaders in farming, agribusiness, environmental stewardship, agencies and food manufacturers and retail in the conversation.”
