‘20/20’: Alltech’s 2013 Symposium Offers a GLIMPSE into the Future

LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) February 15, 2013

With its impact on sustenance and wellness for a burgeoning population, the environment and possible applications for alternative energy, the world’s future arguably hinges more on the success of agriculture than any other industry. The 2013 Alltech International Symposium will zero in on the next seven years, posing the question - can agribusiness overcome the myriad challenges facing it and also feed 7.4 billion people by 2020?

The 29th Annual Alltech International Symposium in Lexington, Ky., USA, from May 19-22, will offer a fresh GLIMPSE into the future of agribusiness. In a recently published International Food and Agribusiness Management Review article, interviews with 25 agribusiness experts identified seven key barriers that may impede the world’s ability to feed nine billion people by 2050. The challenges and opportunities were organized under the acronym GLIMPSE: Government, Losses in the food and ingredient supply chains, Infrastructure, Markets, Politics and policies, Science and innovation, and the Environment.

GLIMPSE’s findings will be a centerpiece of Symposium plenary session discussions, which will also review the state of play in the global feed industry. Given the new information revealed in Alltech’s 2013 Global Feed Tonnage Survey, is agriculture’s next great frontier possibly Africa?

In light of recent food crises, the Symposium will explore how the industry can maintain or restore consumers’ perceptions of food safety and health. It will also seek to answer the question - where does the buck stop with traceability?

New in 2013, Alltech International Symposium delegates will have the opportunity to select breakout session tracks. These tracks, as opposed to traditional species or subject breakouts, will offer attendees a more holistic experience in which they take part in discussions ranging from algae and agriculture’s carbon footprint to nutrition and marketing. Discussions within the track selections may include:

  •     The Business of Agriculture
  •     Crisis Management
  •     Farming Soils for the Future
  •     Milk: The Perfect Food
  •     Carbon Footprint, Sustainability and Profitability
