We're at the Beginning of a Food Revolution, with Sam Kass New Food Order

    • Business

“We're in the beginnings of a total revolution, and I'm excited about it.” This week’s guest is reflecting on the transformation occurring across the food and agriculture industries. Not since the Green Revolution has the industry seen such change.


It hasn’t happened overnight. Over the past decade, entrepreneurs, corporates, activists, investors, and policy makers have been working to transform our food system. But what will it take to actually transform the system to make it way better for all people and our planet? What are the key levers for total transformation? 


Louisa and Danielle speak about the food revolution that’s underway with Sam Kass, former Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition in the Obama administration, Executive Director of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign and the Obama family chef. Today, Sam is a partner at Acre Venture Partners, a venture capital fund investing in the future of food with a mission to improve human and environmental health in the food system.


In this lively and extensive conversation, we cover:


Sam’s personal journey from chef, to nutrition policy advisor for the Obamas, to Venture CapitalistCarbon marketsThe importance of mindset and cultural shift in agricultureThe Inflation Reduction Act
