Introducing 2023 Trend Summit Speaker Kate Hofman

With less than 3 months to go until our 10th Annual Food & Beverage Trend Summit, taking place virtually on Tuesday 21st November, we're excited to reveal the latest speaker to join our line-up - Kate Hofman.

Kate Hofman is a Founder and Chief Brand Officer at GrowUp Farms. She will be joining us in November to talk about agricultural supply chain resilience, sustainable food systems, the benefits and technological advancements of indoor vertical growing.

Currently, transporting, refrigerating, and storing food accounts for around 30% of greenhouse gas emissions, 70% of freshwater use, and almost 50% of all available land on earth. GrowUp Farms uses urban farming techniques to reduce distances that food travels between farm and fork.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be sharing a number of new speaker profiles to keep you fully in the loop on who you can expect to hear from at the Trend Summit, plus find out more about what they do, as well as what they'll be speaking about on the day.
