Event description
As consumers across the world become more environmentally conscious, what do food producers need to be mindful about?

About this Event

Meeting the needs of a changing consumer is challenging – especially when deciding which global market to target. Consumers across New Zealand and around the world are becoming more environmentally conscious, which typically means eating less meat, wanting products without plastic and much more. How does today's volatile consumer environment affect you as a producer? Can innovation help to create products relevant to your consumers? What other shifts in habits are taking place? Innovative technology such as 3D printing and lab-grown food products are providing new ways of producing alternative food and are becoming more and more cost effective.

In this Innovation Series events, we will look at consumer trends in New Zealand and abroad and show the statistics behind these changing consumer preferences. What is the reality behind products that have reduced meat content and incorporate vegetables? Are they taking off? Do we need more of them? What products need to be reformulated or do completely new products need to be created? What food products and/or technology exists in New Zealand that can be used to create new value pathways? It is no secret that our climate is changing and resources are under pressures – how can we collaborate and use innovation to optimise our land use and value of the products we create?
