Time: 5:00-8:00p.m. Cost: $10, Students $5. Place: Rm1400, 515 West Hastings St. Vancouver B.C.
As the importance of agri-food business is growing, the dynamics between innovation, social impact, sustainable supply chain, development strategy and the environment are emerging as some of the key considerations. Related to this is the notion of food security. Latin America is known for global food production. In 2013, Brazil's agri-food exports generated almost US $100 Billion- it is a leading produce and exporter of coffee, orange juice, sugar, beef, soy, pork, corn, ethanol, among others. GreenTech Exchange in collaboration with Latincouver-ExpoPlaza Latina is pleased to deliver the May 29th forum and explore agri-food development in the tropical region.
