There is no doubt we live in exciting, disruptive times. Food (as seen by the recent purchase of Whole Foods by Amazon) is not immune to this disruption. If you want to learn more about the future of food, you don’t want to miss “Food Loves Tech” happening next weekend, November 3rd and 4th, 2017.
Food loves tech is an amazing edu-tainment expo happening November 3rd and 4th from 10 am-4 pm in the Industry City area of Brooklyn, NY. It’s where thought leaders, influencers and enthusiasts in the area of food and technology will unite to reflect upon the future marriage of food and technology in this first of it’s kind event.
The expo features 5 exhibits:
1.“In Field and Sea” will focus on the land, sea, farming, sustainability and feeding a hungry world.
2.“In the City” will focus on how tech companies are changing the food landscape. It will explore drone food delivery and how to make better food more accesible.
3.“In the Home” will explore how tech can improve personal nutrition decisions about what we eat and cook
4. “On the Horizon” will consider the future of food and how farming, cooking, shopping and drinking will interface with advances in technology. Artificial intelligence will be explored in this expo.
5. “Bazaar” will be a tasting station that showcases some of the area’s most innovative food and beverage makers. Innovators in the Bazaar area include Green Mountain Energy, Wainscott Main Wine and Spirits, Great Performances, Foundation for New York’s Strongest, FoodFutureCo, Proud Pour, Califia Farms, Seek, Purity Organic, Misha, Chobani Food Incubator, Health-Ade Kombucha, Oatly, Arcane Distilling, eatCultured, and Selffee.
Personally, I am thrilled that a kombucha company is present amongst all of these food innovators!
There will be panel discussions over the two day event that cover diverse topics such as:
- How food should be grown in the future
- How can technology help save our oceans
- How will we be buying groceries in 2050
- Ways that technology can reduce food waste
- The future of restaurants and robotic chefs
What would a ‘food’ event, even one with a heavy focus on technology be without, well, some food? The event will also have food and drinks prepared by the city’s most innovative chefs and ‘mixologists’ (errr…bartenders).
Tickets for this event are a steal at $75/each. You can buy them here.
