(ITALY)

The 2018 global food innovation summit will discuss how the industry’s diverse ecosystem can best come together to tackle the world’s biggest challenges.

Innovators Magazine is a media partner with Seeds&Chips, which takes place in Milan next month, and we’ll be reporting live from the event via Twitter, Instagram and on these pages.

At a press conference held in Rome today, the organisers – along with key stakeholders involved with the Summit – spoke about the importance of collaboration in developing impactful solutions. And Italy is a pretty good place to talk all things food – according to Marco Gualtieri, President and Founder of Seeds&Chips, it has the ‘tradition and know-how to be the Silicon Valley of Food’.

The event will open with a keynote from Howard Schultz, Executive Chairman of Starbucks; with former US Secretary of State, John Kerry, and Seth Goldman, Executive Chairman of Beyond Meat, other big names among the 200 plus speakers.

Over four days, sessions and meetings will be held on ‘themes related to food and innovation, from climate change to robotics, from e-commerce to precision agriculture, and from food waste to circular economy’ – with a host of innovative projects showcased in the exhibition hall.

 

“The fourth edition of Seeds&Chips represents a crucial step in a path set forth worldwide in 2015, when food and the environment became the leading themes of the debate on the future. From EXPO, to the signing of the SDGs at the United Nations to the Paris climate agreement, in that one year the world really began to grasp the importance of food and environmental issues to the future of our planet. Today the challenges set forth in those 12 months come to the Seeds&Chips stage, through the voices of both young people and some of the most important actors in the world food revolution. Seeds&Chips wants to continue along this revolutionary path in the knowledge that all of these messages, new models, innovations and opportunities related to food must be disseminated to every corner of the planet,” said Marco Gualtieri, President and Founder of Seeds&Chips.
