ACG Chicago Brings
ACG Chicago in May hosted its 6th Annual Food Industry Growth Conference, an event
Food Industry Experts to the Table
designed to engage the community of food business experts.
The event featured a series of sessions covering trends and challenges facing food
producers and suppliers, with an emphasis on safe, healthy and innovative food solutions.
Fresh data from industry research firms Technomic and Mintel laid the groundwork for
the day’s discussions with a dozen C-level executives. Meanwhile, panelists represented a
diverse swath of businesses in the food industry, including burger chain Epic Burger; milk
producer Fairlife, which recently partnered with Coca-Cola; urban indoor produce grower
FarmedHere; and fourth-generation meat packer Rose Packing. These participants debated
the healthy lifestyle premise based on their varying perspectives on the market, regulation
and what can realistically be achieved.
More than 250 attendees participated in the May 7 conference.
To further engage the food industry community, ACG Chicago will launch “The Grilling
Station” on July 29. Growth-stage food and beverage companies can pitch their business
concepts, and expert judges will evaluate contestants’ presentations based on financial,
operational and marketing strength. //
