6th Annual Canadian Food & Drink Summit 2017

2017 Event

The Conference Board’s Food Horizons Canada (FHC) hosted the 6th annual Canadian Food & Drink Summit 2017 in Calgary. This two-day event explored the future of Canada’s food sector, and leveraged new opportunities to enhance the food sector’s performance—both provincially and globally.

This year’s Summit featured sessions with a western Canadian focus—including provincially focused summaries from The Conference Board’s 2017 Provincial Report Card on Food, designed to provide tangible lessons for western Canada. Speakers were specially selected for their ability to feature and explore priority issues for Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Manitoba.
