BMO Capital Markets’ 17th annual Global Farm to Market Conference on May 18th and 19th, 2022 in New York will gather leaders from a range of businesses involved in the food chain and feature thematic panel sessions, company presentations, fireside chats and one-on-one meetings, according to a news release from BMO Capital Markets.
At this event, companies, analysts and investors will discuss how companies are responding to higher commodity prices and rising inflation, shifting consumer behaviors, elasticity of demand, food security concerns, supply chain challenges and workforce issues, according to the news release for the event. At the same time, growers are figuring out how to monetize more sustainable farming practices and better integrate with the downstream food supply chain. Key topics also include how companies will deploy the current influx of cash created by higher profitability and high demand to fuel future growth and return cash to shareholders, along with how companies managing through the challenging inflationary and supply environment will balance strategic planning for the short and long terms.
