Join the conversation about sustainability initiatives and their potential impacts on companies in the grain, feed, processing and export industry during the March 10 general session at NGFA’s 124th annual convention in Austin, Texas.
Consumer-facing companies in food and agriculture are working to reduce their carbon footprints, conserve resources, encourage resource intensification, and operate more sustainably – and they are asking supply chain partners to participate in these efforts. Pipa Elias, director of agriculture in North America for The Nature Conservancy, and Ryan Sirolli, global row crop sustainability director for Cargill Inc., will discuss how to meet the growing demand for food while protecting critically important lands and waters, including by using best management practices with a focus on positive economic outcomes.
The NGFA’s 124th annual convention, scheduled for March 8-10, also includes the annual business meeting, top-name general session speakers, a “Transportation and Technology Open Forum,” committee meetings, city-wide tours and several networking opportunities.
