Now accepting track proposals for Strike Two 2021
What is a ‘track’?
A track covers a specific and urgent ecosystem challenge that we are facing in agrifood, like farm buyouts, digital identities, transparency and COVID-19.
What are the benefits of becoming a track owner?
Taking on the role of a track owner can be very beneficial for your organization. In short, being a track owner is an opportunity to position your organization as a front-runner in the technology-powered future of food. As track owner, you define an ecosystem challenge your organisation is facing and the bright minds of StrikeTwo collaborate to refine the problem statement, an actionable roadmap and deliver commitment to execute. It’s a true acceleration of innovative problem solving.
If you’d like to own track during StrikeTwo 2021, send us an email with your proposal and we’ll add you to the waiting list. You can expect to hear from us to discuss next steps.
Track List – November 2020
Food transition – action for today, not 2050. Track will examine what adaptations can be imminently instituted in a restaurant to ensure people have access to an honest, accessible, 0-footprint food system. Using transparency and measurable footprints, the track will develop a practical use case that demonstrates the connections of the food system in a clear and accessible way. This for both B2C as B2B.

Sustainable Farm Income
The juxtaposition of global hunger, poverty, and a $10 trillion agriculture market reveals the necessity to rebuild systems that benefit all food actors in the supply chain. Further, COVID-19 and subsequent shocks to the global architecture have shown that we need to create resilient agricultural and food system models. Inaccessible or nonexistent data, centralized information, and highly concentrated markets contribute to gaps in sustainability and the ability of one crisis in the supply chain to create food insecurity in the entire agricultural ecosystem. Using digital technologies to solve these problems will progress Sustainable Development Goals on both the environmental and economic ends of the value chain by advocating for deconcentration, decentralized traceability, and dissemination of open data.

Circular Supply Chain Management
In 2019, over 40 million people live as modern slaves across various sectors and geographies. Modern slavery has been widely documented in the food supply chain and the fish industry in particular. Murder, forced labour, human trafficking, and dangerous and inhumane working conditions have been highlighted, particularly in southeast Asia. Simultaneously, consumers are increasing their demands for transparency, on provenance but also on compliance to social and environmental issues. This track will identify transparency mechanisms by which fish meal fed to farmed-prawns could be guaranteed slave-free and communicated to the end consumer.

Sustainable Open Soy
Soy is associated with deforestation of the rainforest in Brazil and the import to the EU of soy certified as non-deforestated rose by 6% from 2017-2018. Soy from the US is not associated with deforestation and accounts for about 26% of imports to the EU. With retailers under pressure from NGO’s, investors and consumers to make their soy supply chains more sustainable and transparent, a product passport for soy is a viable option. Building on the planning of StrikeTwo 2019, this track will build on this and will partner with USFRA to connect to American soy farmers to breakdown the complexity of the supply chain.
