One Healthy Breakdown: transitioning from summer to fall in the healthiest way

First Annual Edible Business Conference

The new Food Lab at Stony Brook Southampton presents the first annual Edible Business Conference June 5-7th, bringing together today’s leading thinkers in food business, media, and policy. The conference is organized around the interests and needs of people working at all links in the food chain—from farmers to foodtech startups, investors to next-wave food enthusiasts, policy makers to agribusiness executive.

BreadThe panels, presentations and other events at the conference are as much about economic development and successful business models as they are about the latest trends and techniques in delivering sustainable farm-to-table, healthy and delicious food and beverages. This inaugural event kicks off with a tasting at the Southampton campus on Friday night, featuring food and drink makers assembled by Edible East End magazine and entertainment by DJ Carlos Lama. Saturday’s agenda includes engaging discussions and presentations on food business, meat and seafood, and the alcohol industry, informative and unusual tastings, and a meal prepared by East End chefs. Sunday features a morning networking session as well as a discussion of socially-purposed food businesses.

Attendees will have access to affordable accommodations on campus, as well as guides to enjoying food and drink experiences around the conference. Tickets for the three-day conference are $259. For more information, visit thefoodlab.org or contact Kathleen.Russo@stonybrook.edu.
