    Chocovision 2018: How can we sustainably feed 9.8 billion people by 2050 within the planetary boundaries?


    Olam’s CEO and co-founder Sunny Verghese is one of the keynote speakers at this year’s Chocovision conference, hosted by Barry Callebaut in Davos. Drawing on the work of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, as well as his own experience at Olam, Sunny will offer his valuable insight into the question on every agribusiness leaders’ lips- how do we rise to the challenge of sustainably feeding 9.8 billion people by 2050?

    In the context of 4 out of the 9 planetary boundaries having already been breached and millions of smallholders still living in poverty, his address will also speak to the importance of collaboration in working towards the UN SDGs, namely Goal 2 – “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”, as a means of solving the intractable problems facing agricultural supply chains.
