What new technology will be the answer to food waste?
We are throwing away tons and tons of perfectly good food every day. And it’s not just you and I – the whole supply chain is plagued by waste. We hear about it, we see it happening, we know we can be better – but how? Thanks to food researchers and innovators, new technology is changing the game and a food revolution is ripe for the picking. There will be winners and losers, but building resilience in the system is at the top of the menu. Join us to hear about how we are redefining food systems through new research and application. Leading innovators and researchers will discuss what they’ve been working on to revolutionise our food system and how we can engage all parties in the supply chain to make a positive and lasting impact.
This event is part of From the Ground Up: An Exploration of Food, Hospitality and Technology in Melbourne – a day of programming dedicated to understanding the role Melbourne plays in the wider conversation around food and innovation.
