Dean of World’s 1st Food Business School Talks Food Innovation & Sustainability

March 27, 2015 | In ,

I recently had the good fortune to talk with Will Rosenzweig about the need for food innovation in this country. He is the Dean of the world’s first Food Business School (FBS), just launched by the Culinary Institute of America. FBS is a center for executive a graduate education whose mission is to enable and empower entrepreneurial leaders to design, deliver, and lead transformative innovations that address the world’s most pressing food challenges—and its greatest business opportunities.

We discussed social and environmental concerns, such as:

  • Obesity, diabetes, and healthcare costs
  • The sourcing and production of our food
  • The challenge of feeding an additional two billion people by 2050, as global resources decline
