At Thursday’s Global Business Forum at the Fairmont Banff Springs, guests heard from a panel of agriculture industry leaders who spoke of the role Canada could play in feeding the world in the coming decades, with the global population expected to increase to 9.8 billion by 2050.
With its abundant supply of arable land and fresh water, the ever-increasing demands of a hungry world present a huge economic opportunity for Canada, the panellists said. But they emphasized that the status quo will not be enough to get us there.“There is an opportunity to reimagine the Canadian agriculture system,” said Murad Al-Katib, president and CEO of AGT Food and Ingredients, a Canadian-based processor of pulses such as lentils, peas, chickpeas and beans.
