Imagine and build the future of food together! 

The agri-food sector -from the fields to the fork- faces profound and structural changes.

Drivers include:
  • New trends in consumption and shopping behavior.
  • New public policies about the health and the well-being of consumers.
  • Energy and environmental issues (climate change, reducing the use of pesticides, waste management, circular economy, etc.).
  • Digital transformation and emerging technologies.
  • Increased price volatility of agricultural commodities
  • Changes in agricultural policies and trade regulations.
  • New players such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and new FoodTech startups.

Today, most of the leaders of agri-food companies believe that the current systems will no longer be effective in ensuring the economic and societal objectives assigned to them, the first of which is to feed the world population while protecting the planet.

As a result, companies must transition.


The Food Business Challenges chair pursues several ambitions. First, it wishes to become a recognized institution where innovative, sustainable, and reliable transition solutions are invented and designed. Together with partners and affiliates, we strive to reinvent tomorrow's food networks and businesses. Second, to serve the agribusiness community by providing high-level training and education on the food system transition challenges and solutions.
