Emerging Leaders in Food & Ag (ELFA) Awards

Nominations are now open

Emerging Leaders in Food & Ag are the next generation of top-tier leaders who are paving the way for a healthy, productive food system through their innovation, thought-leadership, and work ethic. These emerging leaders – who may be procurement specialists, chefs, researchers, innovators, marketers or any number of other roles in the industry – show passion for and dedication to the sector, as well as demonstrate integrity in their work.
We’re letting the agriculture and food community decide who are the top new leaders in the sector. Through a more than three month process, we’ll ask the nation to nominate those men and women who are poised to lead the sector into the future and then ultimately vote for the Top 20 Emerging Leaders. On Monday evening, March 30, we will honor the Top 20 Emerging Leaders through an awards ceremony and reception. The evening will include a keynote presentation, award ceremony, and time to celebrate!
Now is your chance to nominate emerging leaders in the food and agriculture sectors. The top 40 emerging leaders in food and ag that you choose will be identified and then we will let you – the food and ag sector – vote on the top 20 leaders in the sector, who will be honored on March 30th.
