Building on the success of the inaugural 2017 edition, POLITICO’s Agriculture and Food Summit 2018 will return to Paris on November 27, 2018 to convene some of the world’s most impactful agriculture and food leaders. On the menu, a day of dynamic programming, serving a mix of panel discussions, keynotes, and breakout sessions moderated by POLITICO’s top agriculture and food policy journalists.
