We seem to be talking a lot more about the future of food these days – or is it the case of selective perception (or Facebook‘s retargeting): the more you read about a topic, the more it pops up on your screen? No matter – the future of food is here, and we want to find out more.

Foodie has put together a very exciting, never-been-done-before one-day summit this summer focusing on the future of food. Here‘s a glimpse of what we have planned:
THE BIG PICTURE
Presentations to understand both the global and local state of food supply and demand and its impact on what we eat now and how we will eat in the future
THE BIG GAMBLE
A moderated panel of international venture capitalists who invest in food technology will discuss what they see in our food‘s future and how they are bringing these concepts to reality

DINING IN 2020

Foodie‘s own editor-in-chief, Alicia Walker, will host a panel of who‘s who in Hong Kong's dining scene to talk about what‘s happening now and what we can look forward to in the future

FIRESIDE CHATS & ROUND-TABLE DISCUSSIONS
We have a great line-up of companies to provide an in-depth look at what they are cooking up and the worthy causes they are supporting. A selection of topics include:
- Urban Farming

- Zero Waste
- How to Put “Sustainable” on the Menu

We have dedicated an area at the summit for companies to showcase their latest and greatest products (some may even be out of this world!) – and perhaps there will be some wheeling and dealing too...
Excellent networking opportunities
