Food for Thought Series Workshop 3: Good Food

June 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| Free

The Portland Regional Chamber has partnered with UMaine for a 3-part series exploring innovation in Maine’s food systems.

Innovation. Waste. Perception. These are universal considerations for any business, and in this three-part series we’ll examine them through the lens of Maine’s food system. Learn from companies who are embracing innovation and waste reduction, and UMaine researchers with expertise in behavioral decision making who can help you understand how and why consumers make the choices they do. Presented by the University of Maine’s Portland Gateway and Office of Innovation and Economic Development with the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, this series brings together UMaine experts and Maine food businesses for lively discussions around a topic everyone can relate to: food. So, grab your lunch and join us virtually from 12-1 p.m.
