If you lead people to knowledge, it’s better than beating people up with science.”

The global health pandemic is making a big difference in our food system, and how consumers think about food. This shift in how we view food safety, value, and sustainability efforts will impact the future food landscape for years to come.

Tune in to this episode to learn about:

  • Why the current food system can decrease consumer confidence in food buying.
  • How COVID-19 can impact consumer buying habits for the long-term.
  • How it can change the way we value food.
