Opening Remarks – System C
The year is 2030. Autonomous vehicles are alive and Facebook is dead. The “Peak Food” crisis was averted, but we didn’t just produce more. Food is no longer measured by calories and fat content. Nutritional density and microbiome score have emerged as the standard. What does that mean? Hundreds of Billions have been saved in American healthcare, but not due to any new drugs or devices. Production of corn and sugar are in decline, supplanted by peas and hemp. Food and agriculture are on the cutting edge of human health. Producing the right foods has led to a resurgence in farmer profitability. The industrial revolution has finally hit the farm as technology has reduced labor and inputs while improving the quality of the output. And Agriculture is being praised for its contributions to the environment. The world has changed, but how did we get here?
