The ‘10 billion mouths’ agritech conference has three great breakout sessions running from 1.30pm – 2.45pm. Today, we can talk about one that has the potential for creating transformational global food businesses from the regions. It’s the Miro initiative.

In this session you will learn about: Māori values consumers care about, increasing land productivity sustainably, driving social impact from regions, owning the value chain end-to-end, how IP ownership drives future nutrition, how working collectively creates global scale, and how to capture the massive regional development opportunity on our doorstep and take it to the world.
