The World Food Prize conference addresses issues facing agriculture globally, ranging from food security to distribution to safety. Dr. Derek Yach, SVP, Global Health Policy, provides perspective on why PepsiCo was present at this year’s event:
“The reason we are here is this is the premiere venue where the issues of global hunger are addressed, particularly from an agricultural perspective. As a company with a set of very deep roots in farming around the world, we believe we should be both listening and more importantly, contributing to the debate.”
Hear Derek’s thoughts below on what PepsiCo learned from participating in the World Food Prize and also, what the company contributed to the discussion.
