The Washington Post hosts Transformers: Food

On June 13, The Washington Post will bring together entrepreneurs, food industry executives, scientists, farmers and chefs to discuss how technology and science are changing our modern food systems. They’ll discuss the business practices that are driving consumer demand, the innovations and new ideas that are shaping the future of what – and how – we eat and consider the policies that will regulate an increasingly complex global food market.

  • Ken Cook, President and Co-founder, Environmental Working Group
  • Seth Goldman, Co-founder, Honest Tea
