Food+Tech Connect and GRACE Communications Foundation are co-hosting “Hacking Meat”, an online conversation (series of articles) in which leading food and technology innovators respond to the question: “How can information and technology be used to hack* (or reimagine) the future of meat?”
As the central element of most American plates, meat is one of the areas most prime for improvement in our food system. But while demand for sustainably raised meat is booming, the industry is having trouble scaling. Which is why we’re inviting a diverse group of innovators to share ideas about how data, technology and new media can be used to reimagine a more sustainable, profitable and healthy future of meat.
Please join the conversation and share your own ideas or product requests in the guest post comments, on your own blog (send us a link), on Twitter (#hackmeat), Facebook, and Tumblr.

THE BIGGER PICTURE
While this conversation will begin online, we will also be hosting Hack//Meat Silicon Valley, an interactive event where industry “steakholders” will work with entrepreneurs, technologists and creatives to rapidly prototype software and hardware solutions to the meat industry’s most pressing challenges. Hack//Meat SV will happen from June 21-23 at The Institute of Design at Stanford. You can change the future of meat! Sign up today.
