What he will speak about at the Summit:
The New Food Revolution: What would it look like to start over in food? Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of JUST, shares his vision of a world where everyone eats well — a world with food that nourishes our bodies, tastes exceptionally good, strengthens the planet and is accessible to all. This only happens if we think about food differently and make bold investments in cutting-edge science, new technology and culinary expertise. In a few short years, Tetrick’s company has done exactly that, growing from zero to 100,000 points of distribution and releasing some of the fastest-selling products in several categories. Hear how he and his team are building a next-generation food company and helping to transform the $4.8 trillion industry.
