THE FOOD FACTORY OF THE FUTURE (F3) WORKSHOP
Hosted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; University of California, Davis; Georgia Institute of Technology; and ConAgra Foods
The Food Factory of the Future Workshop offered a meaningful dialogue with experts from across the nation as we begin to face food challenges of the 22nd century and beyond.
Worldwide access to high quality food is essential for long-term global security and stability. Manufacturing technologies are critical to that access. Creating the technologies for U.S. companies to compete overseas is also essential for growing the economy and American technological competitiveness in a core manufacturing sector.
This workshop addressed two comprehensive challenges of national and global importance:
- Ensuring a stable and sustainable supply of affordable, safe, nutritious food not only for the U.S., but worldwide
- Equipping and empowering U.S. food manufacturing companies, as well as companies that make food manufacturing equipment, to establish highly competitive plants around the world
