Since 2009, KK&P has co-produced the annual James Beard Foundation Food Conference. With themes ranging from “Trust” to “Appetite” to “Media & Money” to “Food & Health,” the James Beard Foundation Food Conference gathers over 200 thought leaders and food professionals from around the country to discuss and co-create new approaches to complex food issues through an array of academic, cultural, and industry perspectives.
KK&P works closely with the foundation to develop an engaging program featuring diverse perspectives from thought leaders, visionaries, researchers, and professionals. Recent featured speakers have included Marion Nestle, Michael Pollan, Ezekiel Emanuel, Debra Eschmeyer, Raj Patel, and many others. Attendance has steadily grown as the conference has emerged as a leading convention of dynamic and visionary food thinkers and practitioners.
The 2015 conference, “Rethinking the Future of Food,” asked its participants, “What is the future of food we want to create?” The conference explored how changes in science and technology and the principles of equity, innovation, and investment influence the choices that each of us makes today to create a better tomorrow for everyone.
