We bring food and technology together
May 11-14, 2016 / Milan, Italy
Seeds&Chips is the International Summit dedicated to food innovation from farm to fork, where food and technology meet. Hundreds of startups, companies in food and tech, investors, thought leaders and policymakers come together to share content and visions, projects and experiences — innovating the food system is not just an opportunity, it is a challenge that concerns us all. Seeds&Chips is four days of exhibition, conferences/panel discussions, business matching and a hackathon, pitches and awards with the protagonists of Food Tech, Ag Tech and the “Internet of Food.”
Food innovation concerns the whole food chain, from farm to fork: the increasing world population and protein consumption, climate change, scarcity of available resources, socio-demographic changes, protection of health and irreversible and overt changes in the processes of choice and purchase are all important to food innovation. We are changing the ways in which food is produced, processed, distributed, communicated and consumed. Never before in history has man faced challenges so urgent and never before has he had access to the technological infrastructure to address them, and still there remains so much potential to be discovered.
“As citizens and multinationals, we have to prepare ourselves to play a leading role in food and digital innovation. This is the challenge we must pause to reflect on and ask ourselves if not here in Italy - where? If not after expo - when?”
