Event Details

FoodCon is an annual conference that celebrates the food and agri-business community. The business schools of UNC, NC State University, and Duke University co-sponsor this one-day conference each year. Duke Fuqua’s MBA Food and Agriculture club will host FoodCon 2018 on Wednesday, December 5th at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business.

This year’s conference theme is Food-Tech. Robotics and automation, advances in biological sciences, and IoT are changing the way people eat. Some technological shifts in food, such as a robotically run pizza kitchens, come about to improve operations. Other technological shifts are happening, think lab-brewed meat, to support the rapidly growing human population and changes to our environment. This conference will provide a business perspective these on new interactions between technology and food. Panels will touch on automation in food and retail, the future of protein, and how to finance your food start-up.
