RealAg Radio — New Year's Special 2018: Favourite interviews, food trends, and what to watch for in 2019


We made it, you guys. 2018 was a year of uncertainty, volatility, trade moves, unforgiving weather, and a harvest that wouldn’t end. It was also a year of political shuffling,with several provincial elections, trade wars, thick smoke in the West, a DON disaster for some and record soybean yields in Ontario. And did we mention China? Yes, so much China.

The RealAgriculture content team got together to reflect on the year that was, share their favourite and most memorable  interviews, and discuss what lies ahead for 2019. Pipelines and railways, NAFTA 2.0, carbon tax, antibiotics, and China dominated the year’s news, and mental health awareness, tragedy on the highway, and all things dairy got people talking.

You’ll hear from RealAg Radio host Shaun Haney joined by Bern Tobin, Jessika Guse, Dale Leftwich, and Lyndsey Smith talk about their favourite interviews, the new “it” food for 2019, and what food trends we’ll see in 2019.
