Technology, data and new business models are propelling the most radical transformation of the food industry since the Green Revolution. From robots, drones and hydroponics enabling more efficient farming, to accelerators and crowdfunding sites helping food businesses launch and grow, to delivery and meal-kit companies helping people enjoy healthy, affordable food, hordes of innovative startups are disrupting the status quo and pioneering a more sustainable, healthy and profitable food future.
At FTC, we believe these innovators are key to transforming food production, distribution and consumption, and Seeds&Chips, the first international food tech conference and exhibition, is on the exact same page. Which is why we’re thrilled to partner with them to host an editorial series exploring the “Internet of Food.”
From today through April 2, we’re inviting food and tech game-changers to share their responses to the question “How might we use technology, new business models and design to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone?”
We want to hear your ideas, too! Tell us what you think in the comments below, on your own blog (send a link to nina[at]foodtechconnect.com) or on Twitter (#internetoffood), Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Tumblr.
