This forum brought together industry leaders, experts in food safety and agricultural technology, governmental officials, and academic experts to facilitate a dialogue seeking innovative solutions to the sustainability challenges faced by today’s food industry in Mexico and around the world.
Participants included former Mexican president Felipe Calderón, former U.S. Undersecretary of Agriculture Dr. Elsa Morano; Carmen Cahill, Deputy Director, Trade and Agriculture of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD); Dr. Victor Villalobos, Director Emeritus of the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA); Dr. César Bustamante, Economist Leader of the Inter-American Development Bank for Mexico and Guatemala; and Diego Lopez Casanello, Global CEO of Arysta LifeScience.
With a projected world population of 9 billion by 2050, the agricultural industry is challenged today to find ways to increase production while maintaining food safety and conserving natural resources. Arysta LifeScience is a market leader in BioSolutions, a fast-growing market sector of natural products that not only benefit agriculture but also have a positive impact on the environment and consumers’ health. “We’re proud of our commitment to finding innovative solutions to the challenges of today’s agricultural industry,” said Roberto Escalante, Managing Director of Arysta LifeScience Mexico. “As a company focused on research and development of BioSolutions, we feel a responsibility to facilitate these kinds of multi-disciplinary dialogues.”
