#31: Feeding 10 Billion People by 2050 with Fred Haberman


Fred Haberman has been working to take the organic food movement mainstream for more than 20 years. In our conversation, we talk about that state of that movement and the pressing challenge to sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050. 

Along with his wife Sarah, the duo started a full-service marketing agency where they tell the stories of pioneers who are making a difference in the world. His agency has worked with some of the top brands in the country including, Organic Valley, Annie's, Earthbound Farm, Daiya, Volvo, Allina Health, Boston Scientific, and many more. 

Fred also discusses his newer company called Urban Organics that applies the practice of aquaponics to produce many types of vegetables and fish. 

Oh, did I mention he is the founder of the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships that takes place annually in Minneapolis? This guy is endlessly fascinating.
