During the World Food Summit which was held in 1996 food security was defined as existing “when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life” The manner in which the global food giants think about and manage food production and distribution is not only affecting what we eat but how countries, corporations and entrepreneurs can profitably invest into food production. This will form the basis of discussions during the morning sessions, key questions will be:

  • What is the Changing Dynamic of the Global Supply Chain and how does it effect how we invest into food production?
  • Are governments investing enough in the right places to ensure food security and a sustainable future?
  • What Strategies can investors and businesses use to benefit from the current scenario?
  • Food Security in the Muslim World: The Global Halal Supply Chain – How is Malaysia and other ASEAN counties positioned to take advantage?
  • How will new technology & innovation play a role in drought/flood management and how will this effect food production?
  • What is the entire value chain and what amounts of investments are needed from seed to retail and innovation to marketing?
