Event description

Description

What is the future of what we eat and grow? Join us at the Feed the World Pitch Showcase & discover the food technology revolution.

Come and experience the innovative solutions developed after just 48 hours of intense focus and effort. The Hackathon teams will share their journeys and vision for the future with you and a live panel of judges. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from passionsate changemakers and network with industry leaders.


About the Hackathon:

Multiple teams, made up of participants from different disciplines will be united in Christchurch on 2 & 3 December to shape the future of what we eat and what we grow. Ideas will be hatched and developed, and the solutions pitched. The teams have been presented with the challenge below:

Food presents some of the most dauntingly complex problems around. No good solution can be designed without a careful understanding of the users and interconnected environmental, farming, processing and supply systems.

From pea and insect proteins to synthetic milks and alternative “meats,” the food technology revolution is well underway. Is New Zealand ready to take part in this food movement? How can we sustainably feed our planet’s rapidly-growing population (8.5 billion by 2030)? How can we innovate to create New Zealand’s future agricultural and food industries? Are plant-based protein solutions part of the answer?
