What’s trending in food production and what about it?

Unpacking the hottest topics in food production.

In partnership with the Chicagoland Food & Beverage Network, our Intel Distillery team presented this quarter’s Top Ten Topics in food production alongside important food and agriculture industry leaders. With the food production system upended from farms to factories to families, guests shared insights into what’s ahead for our food system.

Here are some of the key takeaways:

In discussing the fall of Meatless out of the Top Ten Topics, Jessica Wohl shared how alternative protein brands need the retail channel now more than ever before. How do these brands get noticed? They need to be where people are looking: in the meat case.
