Minnesota has been innovating in food and agriculture for over 150 years from farm to fork. The state is home to six Fortune 500 companies in food and agriculture, a major land grant university with leading industry researchers, many commodities and specialty crops, non-profits with new models for social impact, and innovative startups solving problems throughout the supply chain and in our food system.
With so many people working across the industry, Food | Ag | Ideas Week (FAI), led by Grow North and its partners, was created to bring the community together, elevate and connect Minnesota's ecosystem and create an invitation for the world to engage. We are doing something different. We believe the opportunities and challenges of our food system require all types of problem solvers. That's why we bring together diverse perspectives including Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs, growers, innovators, nonprofits, and investors from Minnesota and across the country.
Join us as we discuss industry-leading ideas across sustainable agriculture, food innovation and tech, and food and society and come together to move the industry, and our food system, forward.
