About the Summit

Accelerating Action for Animal Health and Environmental Stewardship

The 6th Animal AgTech Innovation Summit returned to San Francisco, bringing together 485 leaders from all aspects of the meat and dairy supply chain. The summit serves as the leading networking event for the industry, connecting corporates, investors, and early-stage start-ups with the common goal of enhancing animal health, nutrition, and sustainability.

With a focus on production resiliency, methane reduction and on-farm automation, panellists discussed new strategies to advance animal welfare, promote environmental stewardship, and attract the necessary funding to support sustainable food production.

During this dynamic two-day event, participants will gain valuable insights from industry leaders and meet the most innovative start-ups shaping the future of the industry. Extensive networking opportunities included deep-dive workshop sessions and a full program of 1-1 meetings.

UC Davis hosted an ‘Innovation in Action Tour’ providing a unique opportunity to explore its world-class animal research facilities and gain insights from esteemed international academia.

Co-located with World Agri-Tech and Future Food-Tech, the Animal AgTech Innovation Summit is part of an action-packed week when the international agri-food community meets in San Francisco to forge new partnerships, accelerate innovation, and build a healthier and more sustainable food system.
