Change and disruption in the organic & natural sector – podcast

Now is a time of incredible opportunity in the organic and natural sector because we are about remaking the food and agricultural systems in a way we haven’t been able to so in some time, said Walter Robb, former co-CEO of Whole Foods Market and now principal at Stonewall Robb Advisors.

There’s no doubt that organic and natural is no longer a fad. In fact, with annual retail sales of more than $200 billion across the industry, natural and organic has tipped into the mainstream and is now defining the future for food, nutrition and finished goods. Listen to Walter Robb, former co-CEO of Whole Foods Market and now principal at Stonewall Robb Advisors, and Judie Bizzozero, senior editor, Natural Products INSIDER, discuss meaningful change and disruption in the organic and natural sector.

In this podcast, Robb discusses:

  • Innovation and growth opportunities, particularly in the plant-based category
  • The importance of creating the next generation of food and agriculture
  • Challenges facing the natural and organic sector
  • Ways to revolutionize the supply chain to meet the needs of the future

Robb is one of the keynote speakers on the “The State (and Future) of Natural & Organic” panel on Wednesday, March 6 during the Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim.
