The True Cost of American Food

Hosted by Sustainable Food Trust
San Francisco, United States, April 14 - 17

Under the theme of The True Cost of American Food, this conference will explore the ways in which the economics of our present food systems are distorted in ways which result in dishonest food pricing, sending wrong signals to consumers and producers about the true cost of current intensive farming systems, and preventing the uptake of more sustainable alternatives.

Our aim is to bring together all those with an interest in unlocking this major barrier to food system change, in particular those in leadership positions. This is because we believe that these individuals collectively have the capacity to transform the future food systems landscape, firstly by recognizing the scale and extent of the hidden costs of food production, many of which we are already paying for without realizing, and then taking appropriate action.
