The Food Systems Summit Pre-Summit took place from 26 - 28 July. The Pre-Summit was held in a hybrid format with 500 individuals attending in-person and over 20,000 virtual attendees! This group came together to participate in a conversation that included private sector, civil society, food producers, Indigenous Peoples, youth and government officials. 

"We demonstrated that a People's Summit and a Solutions Summit are in fact one and the same: we are the solution to the challenges in our world. We will use the remaining two months to the Summit to gather momentum, to galvanize accelerated action towards the 2030 agenda"
 - UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina J. Mohammed

The Private Sector Mechanism was represented at the Pre-Summit by 81 delegates from 24 countries. Throughout the three days, these delegates had 32 speaking opportunities. 

Private Sector representatives were able to take part in a series of affiliate sessions. Below you can see a recording of one entitled "Harnassing the Contribution of International Agriculture Trade for Sustainable Food Systems."
