Cleantech Group, with the support of Silicon Valley Bank and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, invite industry professionals to the latest in its Power Breakfast series: Direct-to-Consumer Food Delivery Services: Growing Local Food Networks.
Successfully running since 2012, the Power Breakfast series is designed to give Bay Area cleantech leaders a platform for open and honest discussions about relevant topics.
Direct to consumer (D2C) delivery models have disrupted consumer product industries from books and electronics to retail stores, web services, and increasingly food. Online sales of food and beverage growing at 19% year-on-year, making it one of the top five fastest growing online sales sectors in the US. The market size equates to $17.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to rise to $30 billion by 2021 in the US alone.
Our panel will explore how supply chain systems are adapting to D2C food models. The discussion will look at how innovative local delivery providers are solving the challenge of connecting local produce with local customers while keeping transportation costs low, but also how large food corporates are adapting infrastructure to provide online delivery services. We will ask what logistic, robotic, AI, or automation innovations are emerging to make these businesses run efficiently and with low food waste generation.
