What is Esca Bona?

Quite Literally: It’s Latin for "Good Food"

Well it’s not really a conference (yawn), it’s not really a trade show and it’s definitely not your mom’s PTA meeting. We brought Esca Bona to life in 2015 because we were sick of boring food conferences that didn’t really connect people, didn’t help the communities they liked to talk about and overall weren’t fun (who likes crappy pastries anyway?).

So What Happens at Esca Bona?

Each Esca Bona event consists of a few key components:

  1. Service | Food makes change because it is such an integral part to daily life. At each Esca Bona event we partner with a local organization, school or community to help address key challenges of the local food ecosystem.
  2. Hands-on Learning | Interactivity and thought-provoking conversation moves needles. At Esca Bona you’re a participant, not an attendee.
  3. Networking | Because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Meet the best and brightest minds from across the supply chain looking to make a difference in our food system, distribution and policies.


A key differentiation of Esca Bona vs. other events is scale. We’re small and we’re proud of it. Each event is capped at just 300 of the best participants looking to stir up the current status-quo of food. Scale builds trust, scale breeds creativity and scale forms strong brands with leaders across the industry. We’ve got a spot for you.
