The 2019 WSJ Global Food Forum: Consumers Trends, Traceability, and Food Efficiency Take Center Stage


FoodLogiQ’s Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Katy Jones examines key insights from the 2019 Wall Street Journal Global Food Forum including the changing consumer, how traceability is gaining momentum, and why food waste is a focus at the farm-level.

The program tackled numerous issues facing the food industry—from the impact alternative meats and startups are having on established markets, to the role data, traceability, and automation will play in the changing landscape of agricultural labor and supply chain transparency.

A Year Later: What We Learned About the 2018 Romaine Lettuce Recall


After retailers pulled romaine lettuce off shelves in the Fall of 2018, consumers were left wondering if leafy greens were safe to eat.

Although consumers were repeatedly reassured by the FDA earlier this year that all the affected produce was removed from retail locations, some consumers still have underlying concerns about whether the lettuce is really safe to eat.
