CAPI’s work is a team effort for gauging the pulse of the agri-food industry

WhyResearch. Collaborate. Elevate.

We are the place for agri-food leaders to come together, share insights and advance ideas on emerging agri-food issues facing this important sector. By providing a safe place for dialogue, source material and education for all stakeholders, we are helping to ensure growth and prosperity in the industry for generations to come.


We provide a neutral place to hold dialogues and generate perspectives among leaders across the food system.


Through a partnership-oriented approach, we facilitate comprehensive research and frank dialogue.


CAPI’s focus is on long term issues and consequences that could potentially have adverse or positive implications for the agri-food sector.
