  • Green Finance, Digital Economy, and Banking;
  •  Transport, Infrastructure, and Energy; and
  •  Health, Technology, and Agriculture.

The TGF features speakers who will address how technology is transforming the food industry and how it can aid in inspiring agricultural innovations to ultimately help fight climate change. Questions regarding how people evaluate consumer acceptance of technology-based food innovations will also be asked and discussed. Mr. Gafour has been invited to speak on October 19, 2022 based on his expertise in cellular agriculture.

The TGF is to be moderated by Dana McCauley, Chief Experience Officer of Canadian Food Innovations Network (“CFIN“), and feature speakers that include David Gauthier, Vice President, Commercialization, Natural Products Canada, Bill Greuel, CEO, Protein Industries Canada (“PIC“), and Mohammed Ashour, Co-Founder and CEO, Aspire Food Group.

Mr. Gafour has also been asked to speak at the TEDxBoston Event in order to address the topics of food insecurity, climate change, and cellular agriculture. The TEDxBoston Event was developed by Ideas in Action and organized as an independent TED event as a hub in Boston for powerful ideas and best practices to accelerate global climate and sustainability solutions.1 The TEDxBoston Event is designed to spotlight actionable ideas in a positive, productive way to transform current systems that are not working and create a more sustainable relationship between technology, education, and research, and the environment.

Speakers at the TEDxBoston Event last year included Barry Greene, CEO at Sage Therapeutics, David Kong, Director of Community Biotechnology Initiative at MIT, Mark Bittman, Journalist and Author, and Sylvia Ruth Gutmann, a Holocaust Survivor, Author, and Speaker.1 Details regarding the specific time when Lejjy will be speaking is to be revealed closer to the TEDxBoston Event.

Management Commentary

“The land is dying, and so is our food. And yet, for most of us in North America we have no sense of what our now annual climate-related disasters will ultimately mean in the long run. We face a new era of food insecurity that we have not seen in modern times. The complexity of these problems means we must be proactive if we are to have a chance of mitigating their effects. We must break the beliefs that have been shaped over modern decades of how agriculture ‘should’ be done and embrace new approaches such as cellular agriculture that break the boundaries across multiple disciplines and ideas,” said Lejjy Gafour, CEO of CULT.

“Both of these events have an important purpose – to address climate and food concerns, connect key players, and find sustainable solutions for our world. I am excited to be part of each event and to share my expertise on food security and sustainability. To be able to listen to other experts and collaborate with people and organizations that have the same goal in mind is a huge opportunity. I am honoured to represent CULT at both of these events,” added Mr. Gafour.
