FoodCon 2017 is a one-day conference held Friday, December 8th at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School focused on the business of sustainable food. Our goal is to bring together a diverse audience of students, community members, and business professionals who have a shared interest in the sustainable food industry. We aim to increase the awareness and understanding of the sustainable food industry as well as support and grow the industry here in North Carolina and throughout the country.


FoodCon began at UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in 2014. The conference brought together a diverse range of speakers to discuss current trends and issues in the sustainable food industry. In 2015, the conference moved to Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and became a partnership between UNC, Duke and NC State. For the 2016-17 academic year, the event was held at NC State University.
