Vertical Future’s Founder & CEO Jamie Burrows is set to speak at the Global Counsel’s global policy conference “The Politics of Food”

This Sunday 29th January our Founder & CEO Jamie Burrows will be part of Global Counsel's global policy conference "The Politics of Food", taking place across 5 cities: London, Brussels, Washington DC, Singapore and Doha.

As one of 19 speakers globally, Jamie will be participating at the session in Doha, entitled “The Role of Technology in the Future of Food Security”.

The MENA region is both the most water-scarce in the world and also one of the most dependent on food imports. The ongoing food crisis is being felt acutely in the region, where countries grappled with disruption to the supply of key food staples – and much higher food commodity prices. The discussion will be a chance to debate and discuss the technological, regulatory and geopolitical challenges testing food systems around the world.

Jamie will be speaking alongside Wafaa AlSaffar, ESG Director at Baladna Food Industries, Hamad Al-Hajri, Deputy Director of the Food Security Department at Qatar Ministry of Municipality, and Bjoern Witte, CEO of Blue Horizon Group.
