VANCOUVER — CULT Food Science Corp., an investment platform with an exclusive focus on cellular agriculture that is advancing the development of novel technologies, announces that its Chief Executive Officer, Lejjy Gafour, has been invited by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to join the Food Supply Council. Launching in June of 2022, the Council is an invitation-only group that was created to bring together businesses and non-government organizations and will consist of a maximum of 25 food industry leaders from across Canada.
The CCC intends for the Council to build on the undertakings of Canada’s FoodLink and address the connections between agriculture, production, inputs, value-added services and transport that keep Canadians and the rest of the world fed. The CCC expects the Council to develop ideas to meet consumer demand and address the global supply challenges, all while focusing on how Canada can be a part of the solution to the current food crisis.
FoodLink is an initiative, also created by the CCC, that focuses on the challenges faced by the Canadian agriculture industry including but not limited to sustainability, innovation, workforce upskilling, increasing exports, and digitization.
