CIFST is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its Canadian Food Summit at the Delta Hotel in beautiful downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba – June 3 to 5, 2020.
Our theme this year is “Called to the Table – Ideas to Action”
At this summit, responding to the Senate Report on Agrifood and the Economic Strategy Tables, our aim is to build a collaborative strategy to use our national food science community to meet these challenges and grow Canadian food’s presence in the world.
Here is a high level overview of our program:
Day 1/June 3 – The skills and labour market gap – our call to action as educators and employers
Day 2, June 4 – The innovation opportunity – our call to action as the food ideas people, scientists and entrepreneurs
Day 3, June 5 – The Western Canada Opportunity – our call to action for industry growth and value-add
