(MILAN)

Former US Secretary of State John Kerry will be the keynote speaker at the 2018 global food innovation summit in Milan.

The announcement was made as this year’s Seed and Chips came to a close on Thursday. The summit saw former American president Barack Obama speak about climate change and food security. It was one of the highlights of a packed event, which is now firmly established as the premier annual meeting place for international stakeholders striving to build a sustainable global food system.
