The Australian's Global Food Forum 2020


The Global Food Forum is going virtual in 2020, returning on October 14 and 15.

The Australian, in partnership with Visy and supported by The Wall Street Journal, is setting the agenda for the future of agribusiness in Australia.

Bringing together the country’s agribusiness leaders, the 2020 Global Food Forum will explore the key issues facing the future of food. Amidst a backdrop of COVID survival, bushfire recovery, water wars and the transition to a low carbon economy, discover how robotics, plant-based superfoods and the paddock to plate phenomenon are changing Australian agriculture.
