Jack Bobo is the author of the forthcoming book, "Why Smart People Make Bad Food Choices," and the CEO of Futurity, a food foresight company that works with food and agriculture businesses and organizations to help them better understand emerging food trends and consumer attitudes and behaviors so they can position themselves to thrive in an ever-more complex world. He has delivered more than 400 speeches in 50 countries on the future of food and how to build consumer trust. In 2015, Scientific American named him one of the 100 most influential people in biotechnology.
