Join Hoos Hungry for our 2nd Annual Culinary Panel to learn about the trends, businesses, and individuals currently disrupting the food industry. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25th at the Yale Club and includes a beer & wine reception.
Description: Recent trends and events make it clear that there is disruption in the food and culinary industry – from Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods to the rise of the Instagram celebrity @brunchboys to the growing demand for product transparency and environmentally-conscious sourcing. Join us for an engaging discussion, moderated by PR maven Rachel Van Dolsen, with disruptors who’ve raised multi-million dollar capital investments for food ventures and who’ve used machine learning to grow the largest meal kit delivery service in the U.S.
