Show Notes

The history of the world’s food systems has had major shifts - from hunting, gathering, fishing, and foraging through the current industrial food system. The 5th and current food system has exhausted its growth trajectory and the world is, once again, staged for a major transformation in the way that food is grown, distributed and produced. There is a movement away from an industrialized, monoculture system built to provide calories and yield to one based on healthy people and sustainable, equitable ecosystems. In the produce industry we are all about nutrient-dense fresh food for healthy people and a healthy planet. In this episode, we talk to Caesare Assad, CEO of Food System 6 a nonprofit accelerator whose mission is to support impact driven entrepreneurs as they transform how we grow, produce, and distribute food. We also talk to two companies involved with FS6: Ethan Rublee, a brilliant roboticist turning his passion and experience from computer vision startups and google to the farm and Lindsey Lusher Shute on supporting smaller acre producers for a more equitable food system.
