Microphone Why the world’s food supply chains remain resilient

Dave MacLennan, CEO of Cargill, talks with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about the evolution of sustainability at the company and across the food and agriculture sector in the past few years.

Speaking at the start of the recent Innovation Forum future of food US conference, MacLennan highlights some of the Covid-19 pandemic’s impacts on commodity markets, and why he thinks that greater transparency will contribute to ever-more consumer interest in where food comes from and how it’s produced. They discuss evolving trust in brands and their suppliers, and how supply chain resilience has maintained food supply in very challenging circumstances.

Cargill was a sponsor of Innovation Forum’s recent future of food conference series.
