Jose Luis-Gomes, managing director of retail and CPG with Google Cloud, will give a keynote address on artificial intelligence and future applications for food industry C-suite executives during FMI’s 2024 Midwinter Executive Conference.

“Nearly one in four food retailers and two out of three suppliers are currently using AI for their business solutions,” said Leslie G. Sarasin, president and CEO of FMI. 

“These numbers will continue to grow in the coming year, necessitating food industry executives know the ins and outs of current and future AI opportunities so that they make informed business decisions.”

For the last three years, Luis-Gomes has focused on helping retail and CPG companies digitally transform with Google Cloud’s technology. 

During that time, he has supported technology acceleration initiatives for retailers and CPGs like Walmart, Kroger, Albertsons, P&G, Mondelez and Colgate. Prior to Google Cloud, Luis-Gomes spent over a decade at dunnhumby partnering with retailers and brands globally to leverage data and analytics. 

Throughout his career, he has emphasized collaboration between retailers and brands while working to leverage data and AI. 

During the FMI conference’s keynote session on Jan. 19, titled “Putting Generative AI to Work for Food Retail,” Luis-Gomes will explore the types of AI, what is already in use, future applications and how generative AI could transform organizational structure, workforce management, productivity and costs and consumer expectations.

“I’m excited for food industry executives to learn from this respected leader in the retail technology space,” Sarasin said. 

“I consider this a must-attend opportunity for our members because it is sure to inspire and inform the food industry of the future.”
