Eating is complex and rife for disruption. From employee turnover, slim margins and limited availability of affordable, sustainable ingredients to food safety compliance and customer engagement, restaurants and foodservice operators have no shortage of challenges. And lacking the time, knowledge or access to ingredients to cook, eaters’ health and wellbeing are suffering.
At Food+Tech Connect, we think technology and design can help improve the impact food production, distribution and consumption have on our health, economy and environment. So we’re asking our favorite food and tech innovators “How might we use technology and design to hack a better future for dining?” We’ll be sharing their ideas as part of our “Hacking Dining” editorial series from June 2-30.
And we want to hear your ideas, too, so we hope you will join the conversation! Tell us what you think in the comments below, on your own blog (send a link to nina[at]foodtechconnect.com), on Twitter (#hackdining), Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Tumblr.
Then, from June 27-29, we’re partnering with Applegate, Google, Chipotle, Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group and Studio Industries to bring food, tech and design rabble-rousers together to prototype technology solutions to industry-wide challenges at Hack//Dining NYC. Spaces are limited and ticket sales end June 13, so snag your spot today here.
