Miami, Jan. 10, 2017- Top industry professionals and business leaders from the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean will convene to explore new trends in making healthier food more readily available to communities at the first annual Better Food Movement Conference on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at Miami Dade College’s (MDC) downtown Wolfson Campus, in partnership with its acclaimed Miami Culinary Institute (MCI).  

The inaugural conference will be a premier event launching the beginning of Food Week 2017 in Miami, attracting the top chefs, global food industry executives, new media influencers, and policy makers.

The Better Food Movement was launched by Natcom in 2016 with the aim of creating a platform for collaboration, ideas exchange, and building partnerships for “The New Food Economy” throughout North and South America. The Linked-In group includes nearly 1,000 members from around the world, of which nearly half are top executives of companies with more than $69.34 billion in annual revenues, and 243,000 employees.

Conference participants will join the discussion on culinary topics affecting the global community and that will inspire the next generation of future food entrepreneurs. Topics include: the effects of the soda tax in various U.S. cities on consumption and health, the potential impact in the United States of Chile’s new food labeling system warning against dangerous nutritional elements, the direction the Trump administration will take on agricultural and food policies and how it will affect trade with Latin America and the Caribbean, and latest innovation to create sustainable food systems.
