Climate Action for a Secure Food System

When: Tuesday, 06/04/2019 through Tuesday, 06/04/2019, 01:45 PM - 02:45 PM

Where: Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - IFTNEXT Stage

The food system is in an interesting predicament;it's a significant contributor to one of its own biggest threats—climate change. Poor land-management is degrading our soil, releasing greenhouse gases, and bringing about catastrophic events such as droughts, floods, fires, among others. Farmers and food industry members are deeply vulnerable to the disasters brought on by climate change, but the level to which they implement or encourage climate-friendly practices is dependent on multiple competing factors. This session will challenge the current thinking on climate mitigation with the understanding that multiple sectors must come together to make headway on this global issue. We will include cutting-edge innovations from the organic industry, which has been focusing its resources on climate mitigation and adaptation, to understand how these experiences and lessons can be used as a learning tool to advance climate-friendly techniques across sectors.

The world needs the brightest minds engaged in the science of food in order to meet the challenges ahead of us, to feed a projected population of 9 billion in 2050. FAO offers a vision for food and agriculture as a key to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and Feeding Tomorrow, the Foundation of IFT, is ready to support by bringing the best and brightest minds to the science of food and to help them improve the world.  Join us to learn more about both UN SDGs and Feeding Tomorrow.
Overcoming Clean Label Challenges in the New Trust Economy

Trust. Influence. Reputation. Accountability. Consumers are demanding more transparency in every aspect of their lives—especially in what they and their families eat. Join us for an engaging, interactive session with a TED talk style dive into this free-from movement where 1 in 4 consumers demand a clean label in over half of the foods they buy. Learn why perception is reality, driven by the new trust economy where likes on social media signal trust more than marketing content from large corporations or scientific “facts” from academia or the government. Backed by 30,000 responses from US primary shoppers and a database of hundreds of thousands of behavioral measures from a community of “Clean Label Enthusiasts™,” we will offer six recommendations for how to overcome the clean label challenge for market success.
Food Production Consumer Perceptions and Social Media Trends

When: Monday, 06/03/2019 through Monday, 06/03/2019, 12:15 PM - 01:15 PM

Where: Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - IFTNEXT Stage

Food production technologies aim to produce safe, nutritious and sustainable foods that consumers desire. But consumers do have perceived notions about some beneficial technologies, such as biotechnology (bioengineered foods), cell-cultured foods (“clean meat” production) or integrated pest management (pesticides), which may contribute to an off-putting feeling when making purchase decisions. Our presentation will unmask consumer perceptions about these technologies, explore how consumers prioritize concerns when making food choices and how they respond in social media to communication tactics.
2020 Vision: Science Communication Challenges for the New Decade

When: Monday, 06/03/2019 through Monday, 06/03/2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where: Ernest N. Morial Convention Center - IFTNEXT Stage

This presentation offers a new paradigm for nutrition communicators by encouraging conduits of nutrition science information to take a more aggressive approach encouraging journalists to stop perpetuating nutrition and health myths. Too often, the very people who should be extinguishing the fires of misinformation are fanning the flames instead, either through a hasty approach to science, politicizing what should be a strictly science-based discipline, or using misleading reportage on nutrition science to serve a third-party agenda. Not only has this contributed to the decades of misguided advice and fad nutritionists, it has encouraged sound-bite science or the actual denigration of science. Focusing primarily on the most commonly miscommunicated issues of red meat, salt, corn syrup and similar “hot-button” ingredients, the presenters will demonstrate how chronic circumventing of science-based communication has handicapped nutrition communicators and the public for decades, and strategies to limit these miscommunications in the future.

Using Robotics for Safe and Sustainable Food Production

When: Wednesday, 06/05/2019 through Wednesday, 06/05/2019, 01:00 PM - 01:30 PM

Where: IFTNEXT Stage

Safe and sustainable food production is an issue that every person on the planet should care about. Agriculture in the 21st century faces the challenge of producing more food to feed a growing population, with a smaller rural labor force. Over the past few years, we have seen a significant reduction in the availability of labor for produce and other food production markets. As a result, the cost of food has risen while the supply of food around the world has diminished. At the same time, governments are upgrading standards on sanitary requirements to ensure safe production of food. Rather than respond to food borne contamination outbreaks, how can we prevent it? Automation is an answer to both the labor crisis and food safety conundrum that place a burden on food production. Learn how automation across the entire food supply chain can lead to safe and sustainable food production that will feed the world, and ensure economic viability for farmers.
