About

FoodCon 2016 is a one-day conference held Friday, November 11th at NC State University focused on the business of sustainable food. Our goal is to bring together a diverse audience of students, community members, and business professionals who have a shared interest in the sustainable food industry. We aim to increase the awareness and understanding of the sustainable food industry as well as support and grow the industry here in North Carolina and throughout the country.

History

FoodCon began at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in 2014. The conference brought together a diverse range of speakers to discuss current trends and issues in the sustainable food industry. In 2015, the conference moved to Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and became a partnership between UNC, Duke and NC State.
