The world’s leading event for the food and drink industry continues to go from strength to strength.

Seed & Chips in Milan welcomed Barack Obama at this year’s showcase, in what was his maiden speech since leaving office, and former US Secretary of State John Kerry will be the keynote speaker in 2018.

The event continues to grow thanks to its collaborative ethos. This week American food advocacy organisation, Change Food, was announced as the latest stakeholder to join the platform.

“Food advocacy organization Change Food and the leading international food innovation summit Seeds&Chips [have] announced a partnership to merge their annual events, which would make the Seeds&Chips (SaC) conference, #SaC2018, in Milano, Italy, the top food event in the world,” the advocacy body blogged.

Innovators Magazine is a proud media partner of Seed & Chips, which tackles the biggest issues facing global food systems. The 2018 conference, from 7 to 10 May, will look at topics including water scarcity, agtech, climate change and food technology. Get your early bird tickets now.
