OAK BROOK, Ill.—Farm Foundation®, an accelerator of practical solutions for agriculture, will host its latest Forum, Creating Supply Chain Agility through Data Innovation, on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to noon CST.
This Forum will examine the power of data to improve cooperation and agility throughout the agricultural supply chain, from farm gate to food service. Speakers will examine current challenges, such as barriers to efficiency and traceability, and the complexity of capturing and leveraging data across ag production systems. They will also discuss opportunities for the future, outlining a roadmap for suppliers and buyers to work together to create a more nimble and effective supply chain.
Attendees will hear from these experts:
- Larkin Martin—CEO, Martin Farm

“Data affects every stage of the food and ag value chain,” said Shari Rogge-Fidler, Farm Foundation President and CEO. “On the heels of the supply and demand challenges of COVID-19, the potential for the improved use of that data to impact all stakeholders is a very timely topic.”
This event is being held virtually. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Professionals throughout the agricultural supply chain are encouraged to attend, including farmers and ranchers, packers and processors, distribution and logistics companies, food service providers and technology providers.
