About the Summit
Future Food-Tech brings together key figures from across the food industry, including investors, start-ups, technology companies and food and ingredients manufacturers. With a common goal to meet the global food challenge, the event will create a forum for networking, debate, discussion and learning – showcasing the technologies and championing the innovations which have the potential to transform the sector.
With the world population set to reach 8 billion by 2024, the challenge is on to feed the world in a sustainable, safe and healthy manner. Add to that the increased role of technology in society, and millennial consumers demanding ever more nutritious, personalised, traceable food and the need for the food industry to respond becomes ever greater.
Following the success of the London event, the Future Food-Tech summit has been developed to meet the needs of the North American market – putting in place the opportunities to create partnerships between investors and innovators, share best practice and gain insight into the future of the industry.
