This roundtable, presented in partnership between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Sealed Air, is part of the pre-conference programming for the Foundation's 2015 Corporate Citizenship Conference. The event is free to attend for those attending the conference and those who are not attending.

As the world’s population increases to more than 9 billion by the middle of the century, the demands for food security, human health, and conserving natural resources will continue to increase. These trends will have a profound impact on food supply chains in the United States and around the world as we strive to balance economic, environmental and social impacts while meeting consumers’ needs. Businesses have a critical role to play to ensure that consumers have access to safe, nutritious food while minimizing household food waste. This roundtable, presented in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Sealed Air, focuses on implications for the U.S. consumer and explore opportunities for companies to leverage education, partnerships, and innovation to address future U.S. food security needs within a global food supply system.
