Melbourne: Future of Food - Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) Agribusiness Leaders Lunch

27 September 2017

Melbourne Showgrounds, Port Phillip Room, Royal Block, Building 5, Epsom Road, Ascot Vale VIC 3032

ACBC Victoria, in partnership with the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), warmly invites you to attend the RASV Agribusiness Leaders Lunch - 'Future of Food' held at this year's Royal Melbourne Show.

The use of digital technology in agriculture has wide ranging impacts along food value chains, improving agricultural productivity, provenance and food safety, as well as on competitiveness.

Europe and the US remain significantly in front of Australia in the use of digital technology and AgTech. In order to ensure Australia's future competitiveness, Australian companies need to adopt new technologies and information to get ahead of the game. 

Our capacity to harness new technologies in agriculture will also determine our ability to remain a key supplier of agricultural commodities and food to our number one trading partner, China. 

Gain insight on these topics and more from our expert speakers including:
  • Keynote Speaker – Dr Wei Siang Yu, Borderless Healthcare Group (Singapore)
  • Keynote Speaker – Mr Sean Starling, General Manager - Research, Development & Innovation, Meat & Livestock Australia 
  • Mr Ben Van Delden, Partner, Head of Markets and AgTech Sector Leader, KPMG
  • Mr David La Ferla, Executive Chairman, SENSAND
  • Moderator - Mr Barry White, Director, Pro-Ex Developments and Chair of ACBC Victoria's Agribusiness & Food Working Group
  • Mr Matt Coleman, President, Royal Agricultural Society Victoria

The program will include keynote presentations, moderated panel discussion and Q&A, as well as ample networking opportunities.
