Making Systems Investing Practical

Rex Raimond July 1, 2022

Our food system has been on a trajectory of concentration and consolidation driven by agribusiness, which prioritizes efficiency and profit maximization. The system is fragile and broken. Recent global events have spotlighted the tension between efficiency and resilience. New farm and food businesses are emerging that are profitable while attaining goals of equity, livelihoods, human health, and planetary health. In this session, we’ll use an interactive format to examine the characteristics of food businesses that embrace these values, highlight examples of investments that can achieve holistic impact goals, and apply investing tools that can help move toward a new economy.
