What is FoodTech?

FoodTech is defined as how we use new technology or processes to create an efficient, sustainable ecosystem, for producing, transporting, preparing and cooking food.

Expert speakers will address three main themes:

  • Theme 1: Food manufacturing and process efficiency – where can efficiencies be made?
  • Theme 2: Food product development – how do we make desirable “healthier food?”
  • Theme 3: Food supply chain – getting the supply chain to work better, together
