Part of the Rethink Events global portfolio of market-leading summits: World Agri-Tech, Future Food-Tech, Animal AgTech, Indoor AgTech and World Water-Tech

The Blue Food Innovation Summit returned to London to delve deeper into the fast-developing landscape of aquaculture and ocean health. With our food system increasingly under stress from conflict and climate change, the summit aimed to put blue food, sustainable aquaculture, and restorative ocean practices at the heart of the global conversation.

On May 23-24, the second edition of the summit brought together ground-breaking companies from around the globe to discuss forward-thinking approaches to aquatic food production, including sustainable aquafeed, seaweed, fish health and welfare, and digital platforms for smallholder farmers.

By showcasing disruptive technologies, and exploring case studies of innovation in action, the focus was on overcoming bottlenecks to growth and promoting greater partnership and collaboration to protect and restore the ocean ecosystem.

From producers, feed suppliers and health providers to retailers, investors and innovators, the summit provided stakeholders from across the value chain with a vital platform for knowledge exchange and networking through interactive panels, breakout discussions, and quality 1-1 meetings.
