Following from the success of 2021’s Sustainable Agribusiness and Innovation event, this year Canning House, in partnership with Baker McKenzie and Trench Rossi Watanabe, returns to the topic of sustainable agri-business to explore Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)’s place in the global agricultural economy, as well as insights into the region’s vibrant Food and Beverage industry.
LAC not only offers opportunities to expand growth and exports, but also a chance to do so in a way that avoids greater damage to the environment - safeguarding and improving lives and livelihoods throughout the agricultural supply chain, right up to the consumer.
How? Through harnessing science and technology to modernise production methods, improving and standardising legislation and ensuring evidence-based policymaking. Canning House, Baker McKenzie and Trench Rossi Watanabe explore these important issues in this two-panel event.

Closing Remarks by Jeremy Browne, CEO – Canning House
Representing 15% of the earth's surface and as a recipient of 30% of global precipitation, Latin America and the Caribbean generates 33% of the world's water, making the region an immense world reserve of arable land and forests. Of this available regional land mass of diverse topography, more than a third is used for agriculture and almost half is covered with forests, thus making LAC farming systems some of the most diverse, complex and bountiful in the world, already boasting in fact, a bigger share of global production than either the EU or the United States, and positioning it as the world’s largest net food exporting region.
A combination of external factors, including population growth, heightened global food security risks and disruption mean worldwide demand for food, feed and (bio)fuel will only continue to grow. With LAC agriculture and fish production set to increase by 14% over the next decade, the region has a unique opportunity to reinforce and expand its role and reach in the global agro-economy.
