1. Food Loves Tech


Mail carriers entering your home to stock your fridge, groceries at your doorstep via drone, plant-based meat that “bleeds”—if this is increasingly how we’re eating now, then what can we expect in 2020? 2050?

And given a growing world population and climate change concerns, which of these innovations do we actually need?

These are the big questions we’re exploring on November 2-3, 2018 at Food Loves Tech: our all you can eat and drink Industry City expo where you can test drive food technologies from field and sea to next gen frontiers.

We’ll also have expert panels answering some of the most pressing issues facing our food supply. Stay tuned on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we announce updates.
