North Central NAMA Hosts Panel Presentation

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 , 2:11 pm

It was standing room only for the North Central chapter’s October event focused upon “Meet Your New Boss.”  The North Central chapter hosted a panel discussion in partnership with Meredith Corporation at broadhead’s 401North event space.  The concept was focused around how consumers are shaping and influencing how we purchase, buy, interact and think about our food consumption. How are millennials and Gen X impacting our thoughts on food and agriculture as a whole in the future?  Is the consumer “your new boss” in agriculture?

The panel discussions consisted of three food editors from Meredith Corporation’s food titles: Jan Miller–Better Homes and Gardens, Executive Food Editor; Hannah Agran–Midwest Living. Food Editor; and Nicole Aksamit—AllRecipes, Food Editor.  The panel discussion was moderated by Successful Farming’s Content Director, Dave Kurns.  The panel discussion helped the NAMA members and guests grasp a better understanding how each of the food editors’ audiences think, interact, purchase and cook with food. The discussion focused upon how we can work together to bring a message to both audiences on agriculture and food?  Let’s continue to have more conversations “together” like this on the future of food.
