The food safety landscape in China is rapidly transforming initially triggered by the public trust crisis after the infant formula milk scandals in 2008. While companies are exploring solutions to tackle the challenges, new technologies like AI, blockchain and genomics are bringing new possibilities to disrupt and reshape the supply chain from farm to consumer’s table. How can technologies improve the traceability and transparency of the food production, and how companies with different value chain positions are applying them into their business? How to build and enhance the ecosystem with effective engagement with varied stakeholders in the Chinese market? How is the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the global food supply and how can new technologies can help adjust to the “new normal”?

To inspire broader awareness and draw on collective wisdom on food safety, AmCham China and our Digital Circle partner Mars China are organizing this webinar with experts from technology, food / agriculture, retail / distribution and other sectors. “From Farm to Table: Food Safety Empowered by Technology” on June 17
