HowGood Speaking Events

Opportunities to Engage in Conversation on Regeneration and the Food Industry

Winter and Spring 2022


Ethan Soloviev Chief Innovation Officer, HowGood

Never before have we expanded so quickly, with this much technology, and done so much damage to the ecological and cultural systems of the planet. Agriculture has been a large part of this. But agriculture is not inherently the problem. The term “Regenerative Agriculture” is undoubtedly hot right now, but most people using it are still thinking and making decisions from the same old paradigm that got us into this mess. In this session, we ask you to come with an open mind, as we explore the relationship between data, decision-making and each of the four paradigms of agriculture; Regenerative, Net-positive, Conservative and Extractive.

COVID-19 has rearranged the supply chain cosmos, impacted consumer preferences, and caused manufacturers and retailers to reevaluate their approaches to the market. How is production agriculture meeting the needs of food companies and what do we as an industry need to do to meet their expectations? We’ll examine data and case studies on how companies are reacting key megatrends in food production, distribution, and consumption, and their ultimate impact on the crop production channel.
