Now, more than ever, people are asking the important questions of how food is grown, where it comes from and how it gets to our dinner plates.
BASF Agricultural Solutions started Dinner is Grown in 2019 to gather farmers, media and community voices from across the country to discuss the important questions and take you along the journey of preparing food for America's tables.
The purpose of Dinner is Grown is to make connections, build relationships, and have critical conversations to foster a greater understanding between today's farmers and consumers.
The Dinner is Grown discussion is important to have all of the time. However, throughout the year we put issues front and
center at a dinner table filled with growers, influencers, members of the media and BASF representatives. The events are the
perfect pairing of good food and great conversation.
Farmers and consumers can feel like they’re a world apart, but in reality, there are shared ideals when it comes to food – the desire for quality food that’s nourishing and produced in a responsible manner.
On a hot and humid evening in July, two farmers finished up their long day in the field, five national journalists took a break from impending deadlines, and two dieticians wrapped up their daily meetings with clients and logged into a videoconference to participate in the third Dinner is Grown event hosted by BASF Agricultural Solutions.
