I am moderating a chat today as part of a the larger Atlantic Food Summit that will stream live here starting at 1:00 pm EST.
I’ll be moderating a panel at 1:30 pm titled “Feeding a World of Nine Billion — Sustainably” with World Food Program CEO Rick Leach; National Pork Board CEO Chris Novak; Wellesley College professor Robert Paarlberg, Rodale Institute Executive Director Mark Smallwood, and Whole Living Executive Editor Jocelyn Zuckerman.
I’m just back from the Doha Forum where global food security was a key theme of the Qatar Emir’s opener. Should be interesting.
Below the fold I have pasted the agenda for today’s meeting. Atlantic Senior Editor Corby Kummer, one of the nation’s great food commentators will be MCing most of the meeting — and doing headline interviews with Martha Stewart (1 pm EST) and Mario Batali (2:30 pm EST).
