The Regenerative Food Systems Investment Forum conference brought together a truly unique group of stakeholders ranging from farmers to supply chain companies to consumer products companies to investors. A number of our Grounded Growth Members were able to attend a member’s meeting we had co-located with the conference — as well as stay for the larger summit.
In this video interview, California members Derek Azevedo – @email@example.com of Bowles Farm, Matt Nicoletti @mattbnicoletti – of Penny Newman Grain and @Brian Dawson of Harvestport share their insights and key take-aways from both our meeting and the larger conference.
Stay tuned for other interviews with members who attended to be added next week as well.
Topics discussed include:
- Nutrient density testing
- Strong interest from investors
- Cherry farm case study shared at the conference
- Impressions from General Mills and Indigo ag presentations
- How California / fresh growers and Midwest / grain growers can learn from each other to help capture value from emerging regenerative value-added streams
