THOUGHT4FOOD # 3: Farm to Table - Building Strong Links in the Food Chain
Copia Presents THOUGHT4FOOD PART 3: Farm to Table - Building Strong Links in the Food Chain
Tuesday, June 18

with special thanks to Sponsors Vancity, Choices Markets & Indigo Natural Products Management

Are you someone who loves to eat amazing great food?  Have you got to a place in life when you think about where it came from and what it does in your body as well as how it tastes?  Do you have a recipe for some fabulous soup or sauce (or something else mouth-wateringly good) that makes all your friends say "Wow  you should bottle this!"?  Have you been harbouring a dream of someday opening a café, restaurant, food cart or artisan manufacturing company? Are you already in the food business and looking for ideas, inspiration and supportive networks to help you grow?

Answering Yes to even one of these questions means THOUGHT4FOOD is right in your heartspace, and, like many Copia events bringing heart and soul together with business and strategy, we have a LOT to offer you!  Join us for one or all of these events featuring some of the best and brightest conscious minds on the lower mainland Foodie scene, all with mindful approaches to health, sustainability and entrepreneurship.  


We've got a fabulous range of the region's best snack, soda, beer, gourmet market, grocery and restaurant exhibitors offering up tasty samples of their wares for you to enjoy at each event, with many opportunities to take home some of what you love most as well.


There has never been a more important time in human history for us to think about what we eat and where it comes from. There has probably also never been a more exciting time to be a Mindful Foodie or build a Conscious Food Business. THOUGHT 4 FOOD is a series of three evening events designed to inspire, educate, and bring together food growers, makers and eaters with distributors, retailers, and media.

We're serving up the whole food system, in easily digestible pieces.  Our speakers include the best and brightest of culinary creatives in our area, with a range of expertise that covers off every milestone in the cycle from growing food (at home or as a producer) to preparing food (again both for personal consumption only and for sale) and on through manufacturing, distributing, retailing and turning it back into soil!  For those with a business bent, each panel includes speakers in the early stages of a startup, at midsize development and all the way up to national and global reach  no matter where you are in your dream of sustainable foodie entrepreneurship, you will find yourself represented on our stage and gain a good sense of next steps.  

(All events are 6:00pm - 9:00pm @ Vancouver's beautifully eco-restored heritage conference space, the Dodson Centre, Hastings & Main)

PART 3: Farm to Table  Building - Strong Links in the Food Chain
Tuesday, June 18
Featuring Commercial Growers, Locovore Restaurants & Foodie Bloggers

Sustainable Foodies eat very carefully and consciously at home, but what about when you go out?  It's great to know that there are natural, locovore restaurants supplied by responsible growers and other sustainable vendors, serving up menus you can trust!  How does a restaurant (or food cart) build those relationships?  And how can small growers and makers get on the vendor list of those restaurants?  And, if you haven't thought of this as a consumer before now, why should you care?

Speakers include:  Andre LaRiviere (Smarter Restaurants), Peggy Vogler (Aphrodite's Organic Café & Pie Shop), Hunter Moyes (The Tiffin Project), Suzanne Fielden (Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co), Chris Whittaker (Chef, Forage Restaurant), Eric Pateman (Edible Canada), Preet Marwaha (Organic Lives).
