CULTIVATE Sustainability Conference and Trade Show

September 7, 2022
RBC Convention Centre
Winnipeg Manitoba

Be a part of the Green Revolution 2.0

Between consumer expectations around sustainability, extreme weather, regulatory pressures, and the soaring cost of energy — how we grow, process and transport food is undergoing massive change.

As consumers demand better transparency, lower carbon options and companies make net zero commitments, our sector is at a crossroads. The industry needs to adapt, as maintaining the status quo is no longer an option.

In the 1950s, scientists, governments and companies bred new plant varieties and introduced agri-chemicals that launched a green revolution that fed the world’s booming populations. Today, a new revolution is needed. One that reduces waste and water usage, preserves biodiversity, and embraces principles of the circular economy. The good news is that the technologies and solutions are already here, and they are good for people, profit, and the planet!
