Past Events with GFFN

Good Food Finance Week

In April 2022, GFFN held its first Good Food Finance Week. It kicked off with a high-level Leaders Dialogue and continued with an event series that launched the Catalyst Groups. The week marks the start of the implementation phase for GFFN.

Good Food Finance at NY Climate Week

GFFN met businesses and investors during Climate Week NYC 2022 to demonstrate the progress made and invite them to join the network to unlock finance for sustainable and climate-resilient food systems.

Strengthening collaboration between private and public banks

This GFFN event took place in November 2021 to strengthen private-public partnerships to scale up finance for sustainable food systems.

High-Level Leaders Roundtable 2021

The high-level leaders’ roundtable in September 2021 marks the official launch of the Good Food Finance Network.

GFFN is starting to become the go-to forum for the world of finance to come together and build massive momentum behind transforming food finance. Together, we must work to create and flesh out the Good Food Finance Agenda for this decade and beyond.
