National Conference for Food and Agribusiness 2017

Tue, November 07 2017, all day

The National Conference for Food and Agribusiness brings together professionals from across the agri-food system to gain industry and business insights, network, and learn from one another. Hosted by Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business, the 2017 conference features the Large Commercial Producer Project. 

The Large Commercial Producer Project is built around a survey of agricultural producers themselves in an effort to understand their preferences when interacting with agricultural salespeople, retailers, lenders and manufacturers. The insights gained can help agricultural and food businesses shape their organizations and customer interactions for optimal success.

The project, now in its sixth iteration, focuses on U.S.producers of corn/soybeans, wheat/barley, cotton, fruit/nuts/vegetables, dairy, hogs and cattle. This year's study also expands into procurement.
