In recent years, there has been a push to transform Saskatchewan from a commodity exporter to creating more value-added products right within our borders. That is the focus of the Saskatchewan Agri-Value Forum, hosted by the Government of Saskatchewan.

This year marks the 10th edition of the Agri-Value Forum. The event is an excellent opportunity for Saskatchewan’s value-added sector to share information and ideas to advance the province’s agri-food sector.

The Sheraton Cavalier Hotel will be the venue for this event, expected to attract 200 attendees. The format will be slightly different than previous years. April 30th will be full day of engaging speakers and panel discussions followed by an evening reception. On May 1st, participants can choose from three concurrent, half-day workshops: Performance Marketing, Transformation Leadership Program, and HR Strategies for Saskatchewan Employers.

The Agri-Value forum has great content that would benefit a wide variety of stakeholders: processors, ingredient companies and snack food companies, to government representatives, researchers, and industry support groups.

The 2024 program covers a range of topics: Food Industry Trends, Uncovering Food Emotions with Neuroscience, Lessons Learned from Scaling International Start-Ups, Indigenous involvement in Value-Added Ag, Next-Gen agri-food solutions for a changing world.

The keynote speaker is Christine Gould founder of Thought for Food based in Switzerland. From biotech and digital innovation to circular economy and open business models, Christine Gould will explore the future of food and the people that will transform it. What agri-food innovations are going to transform our food system? How can you attract the best Gen Z talent to your business?
