Event description

Description

Food means many things to many people. To some it is simply fuel for the body and to others it has cultural significance or a way of connecting with whanau. For some it can be a livelihood and a way of life and increasingly people are making their food choices based on ethical, health and ecological values. Whatever food means to you, there’s no denying its importance to the New Zealand economy.

Hawke’s Bay is renowned as a producer of a wide variety of primary and processed foods, however the future of food is rapidly changing. What might the global food industry look like in the future and what does this mean locally for the region?
