    Levar Jackson: Pioneering Sustainable Hospitality

    Levar Jackson: Pioneering Sustainable Hospitality

    Levar Jackson, the Founder and CEO of Yogh Group, joins us to share his journey towards redefining the hospitality industry through sustainability. Yogh Group stands out as a beacon in the transition to an interconnected, intelligent, low-carbon world by weaving together hospitality, art, agriculture, and cuisine. Jackson's vision is clear: to lead the hospitality sector into a sustainable future without compromising on luxury or experience.

    Our discussion delves into how the Yogh Group is setting new benchmarks in sustainability. Jackson's approach is holistic, focusing not just on environmental impact but also on how spaces interact with their communities and ecosystems. He states, "Sustainability is just as much a corporate and commercial liability as it is a personal one," emphasizing the shared responsibility businesses have alongside individuals in fostering a sustainable future.

    Before his innovative venture into sustainable hospitality, Jackson was at the helm of Visual Renaissance, a full-service art strategy firm he led from 2009 to 2022. His experience curating unique art experiences for sophisticated properties has seamlessly transitioned into Yogh Group's operations, enriching its hotels with art museums that blend culture with sustainability.

    Throughout the conversation, Jackson highlights the importance of technology and innovation in achieving sustainability goals. He critiques the slow adoption of new technologies and the carbon credit market, advocating for more direct and efficient solutions. His philosophy of additive sustainability—providing alternatives rather than taking away—offers a fresh perspective on how the hospitality industry can evolve.

    Key takeaways from our conversation with Levar Jackson include the significance of integrating sustainability into the core business model, the role of art and culture in enriching the hospitality experience, and the urgent need for industry-wide adoption of sustainable practices. Jackson's work with Yogh Group illustrates the profound impact that visionary leadership can have on an industry, proving that sustainability and profitability can go hand in hand.

    Levar Jackson's pioneering efforts with Yogh Group serve as a powerful example of how the hospitality industry can lead the way into a sustainable future. His insights are a call to action for businesses to embrace sustainability as a pathway to innovation, profitability, and positive societal impact.

    Livestock in the spotlight again as the world meets in Dubai for COP28

    Livestock in the spotlight again as the world meets in Dubai for COP28

    It has been an interesting week for the climate as well as agriculture as world leaders met in Dubai to navigate the world at 1.5 degrees. The COP28 summit announced that 134 world leaders have signed up to its landmark agriculture, food and climate action declaration.  Over USD$2.5 billion in funding will be mobilized to support food security while combatting climate change. 

     

    How will this affect livestock producers in Asia?

    Meet the zero consumer

    Meet the zero consumer

    Would you label yourself a ‘zero consumer’ or do you know who a zero consumer is? Producers are quite aware of changing consumer habits, behavior and demands and how this has disrupted traditional ways of doing business. How do we frame a zero consumer? They are comfortable with omnichannel shopping, save and splurge at the same time, are conscious about health and sustainability, and will switch brands easily if they are not satisfied with what one producer offers.  Are producers in Asia keeping in step with these changing consumer patterns? With Asia’s dynamic and growing consumer base, Asian Agribiz nods a big YES to this.

    When your dinner is printed with Eshchar Ben-Shitrit of Redefine Meat

    When your dinner is printed with Eshchar Ben-Shitrit of Redefine Meat

    Redefine Meat co-founder and CEO Eshchar Ben-Shitrit long had aspirations to lead a company, though he never imagined taking the risk to start his own. But learning about the environmental harms of mass beef production, plus having to answer his kids’ questions about what happens to baby cows at certain farms, was enough to convince him to say goodbye to corporate life and join the plant-based revolution.

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Eshchar recounts his path from product manager to marketing executive to Redefine Meat — the company he launched in 2018 to commercialize 3D-printed, plant-based steaks. Today the company’s printed beef, lamb and pig alternatives can be found across Israel and Europe, with imminent plans to enter the U.S. market.

    A climate-resilient ancient grain with Pierre Thiam of Yolélé (2022)

    A climate-resilient ancient grain with Pierre Thiam of Yolélé (2022)

    Pierre Thiam is a renowned chef, restaurant owner, cookbook author, and co-founder of Yolélé – a company working to introduce the world to fonio, an ancient West African grain built for climate change.

    But it hasn't been all sunshine and good harvests for Pierre. In fact, he was robbed just days after he first arrived in New York City from Senegal.

    It was 1989, and he had just traveled to the U.S. to study chemistry and physics. This chance incident, however, set Pierre’s life on an entirely different course.

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Pierre talks with Guy about his company’s work circulating fonio, a nutrient-dense and drought-resistant food source. Pierre also shares how he overcame cultural norms to embrace his cooking career, and his take on the connection between colonization and the vulnerability of our global food systems.

    Threading the future of circular fashion with Peter Majeranowski of Circ

    Threading the future of circular fashion with Peter Majeranowski of Circ

    Over one hundred billion garments will be produced this year, but they don’t have to be. 

    Peter Majeranowski says we have all the clothes we need to make all the clothing we’ll ever need, and his company, Circ, has pioneered the technology to prove it. 

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Peter shares how trying to create fuel from tobacco unintentionally led to the creation of a different material — pulp that could go back to the beginning of the supply chain and close the loop on fast fashion. Plus, the future of sustainability in the industry and the impact brands can have on the environment simply by changing their fabric sources.

    Conversations about sustainability are evolving

    Conversations about sustainability are evolving

    The focus on sustainability in livestock production is growing and producers in Asia are in a sweet spot as the industry consolidates and modernizes. An interesting observation is that conversations about sustainable transitions have evolved beyond climate change and includes effects of production across the value chain, on the environment and society. These include, land use, food waste, CO2 emissions and more, much of which will be covered in Asian Agribiz's updated format of its Broiler Feed Quality Conference which has sustainability at its core.

    How do you target the right consumer?

    How do you target the right consumer?

    Targeting the right consumer remains elusive but necessary. As a new era of consumerism unfolds, producers are trying hard to make sense of what influences new spending decisions. McKinsey says that 33% of millennial and Gen Z consumers say they choose to buy a brand that represents their values. But know also that alignment with a consumer’s values may raise ‘consideration’ but not necessarily prompt purchase. There are other factors to consider like product superiority, taste, and value, alongside animal welfare, environmental consciousness and sustainability that have come to awaken consumer choices and prompted producers into action.
