Building a Regional, Circular Food System

9:00 am - 10:00 am

Room 402, Chiliwack

What does it mean for food supply chains to be circular, regional and resilient?

With the growing awareness of the environmental impact of food systems, the volume of food waste and the importance of local production, there is an urgent need to develop circular food systems. Most forms of agriculture and the food systems they operate within are fundamentally linear. How can circular strategies improve their productivity and efficiency? We will explore efforts to build resilient regional food systems that promote conservation, social equity and economic prosperity.

Hear from practitioners sharing their experiences, challenges and successes in applying circularity to local food systems as they catalyze actions towards a food system that works for the future.
