Business of Food

Launched in 2017, the Business of Food is an initiative in the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business connecting faculty, students, alumni, and industry leaders engaged in the sustainable production, processing, selling, and management of food and beverage products.

We bring together growers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and grocery, restaurant, foodservice, and beverage merchants through teaching, research, and industry engagement.

This theme connects the Dyson School, the Hotel School, the Johnson School, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to create, inspire, and nurture thought leadership throughout our global economy.
