HIGHQUEST PARTNERS REBRANDS ITS ORGANIC & NON-GMO FORUM AS "UNCONVENTIONAL AG" EVENT
Source: HighQuest Partners

Boston - Reflecting the proliferation of new opportunities along the agricultural supply chain, HighQuest Partners has introduced Unconventional Ag, a rebranding of its Organic & Non-GMO Forum, now in its eighth year. This newly refocused event is key to discovering the latest insights in identity preserved, organic, and non-GMO crop production, along with the myriad of new offerings and up-and-coming trends in the burgeoning ag sector.

The two-day Unconventional Ag event will take place this year in Minnesota, November 29 & 30 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Imperative discussions on new and emerging opportunities for farmers, grain handlers, processors, food marketers, equipment and technology providers and more will be the cornerstone of this conference. This includes those that have developed from the rapidly changing global marketplace influenced by new outlooks for planting and the availability of commodities due to the Ukrainian conflict, as well as increased demand from consumers for healthier foods and a healthier planet.

"Through the years, the Organic & Non-GMO Forum has served our audience well, but with the recent global environment and necessary pivoting required to continue to supply the world with food, along with the explosion of new offerings across the agricultural value chain, an expansion of the event was the undeniable choice," said Joy O'Shaughnessy, COO of HighQuest Partners, the host of the event. "Our attendees can expect a seamless transition to an event that will now include more discussions on soil health, plant-based options, cell-based food products, fermentation, animal feed and more."

Speakers at this first Unconventional Ag include:

Jennifer Tucker, Deputy Administrator at USDA National Organic Program.

David Hightower, acclaimed author of The Hightower Report, revered for its commodities reporting.

Baraem Pam Ismail, Plant Protein Innovation Center out of the University of Minnesota.

Jeremy Zuidema, President, High Caliber Transloading and Storage.

Colin Steen, CEO, Legacy Agripartners.

Other companies set to send speakers to Unconventional Ag include Mercaris Data Service, Mintel Group Ltd. and Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance (SSGA).
