Washington, D.C. – Today, the Plant Based Products Council (PBPC) announced Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson will keynote PBPC 2023 Annual Conference: Circular Solutions. As the Representative for Pennsylvania’s 15th Congressional District and the Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture, Rep. Thompson will share remarks on Congress’ priorities for the 2023 Farm Bill, growing the bioeconomy, rural economic development, and fostering innovation in agriculture.

PBPC2023 will take place at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C., from Monday, Mar. 27, to Wednesday, Mar. 29, 2023. Owned and produced by PBPC, the association’s inaugural conferencewill explore the innovations, business models, and policies influencing the entire lifecycle of bioproducts in support of a robust circular economy. Attendees will hear from, and network with, industry leaders, policymakers, brands, and experts through panels, keynotes, networking sessions, and more.

As Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture, Rep. Thompson oversees the Farm Bill, legislation that sets national agriculture and nutrition policy. This landmark bill, renewed every five years, will be the agriculture industry’s top priority in 2023, and the next several months will be decisive for the plant-based product industry’s growth and development. Aside from his leadership and responsibilities in Washington, Rep. Thompson brings a particularly unique perspective on this evolving industry – agriculture continues to be Pennsylvania’s top industry and he is the descendant of a long line of dairy farmers.

“We are thrilled to have Chairman Thompson represent Pennsylvania’s vibrant agricultural industry and the House Agriculture Committee as a keynote speaker at PBPC2023,” said PBPC Executive Director Jessica Bowman. “The plant-based products industry is one of the most important innovations for the agriculture industry in modern history. It presents an opportunity to source everyday consumer products from renewable inputs like corn, hemp, and soy grown on American soil. We are excited to convene Chairman Thompson and other policy and industry leaders to drive this industry forward and reinforce America’s farmers as part of the solution to our collective climate challenges.”
