“The world is on the cusp of a revolution in food and agriculture.” The words of John Kerry, former US Secretary of State, and keynote speaker for the inaugural Global Table and Seeds&Chips food innovation event due to take place in Melbourne this September.
He continued: “We have to make radical changes to ensure the prosperity of future generations. That’s not a bad thing. It’s an exciting time to be part of these industries.”
Key stakeholders from across Australasia – and beyond: startups, academics, corporates, business leaders and policy makers, will gather in Melbourne later this year to embrace that spirit and inspire solutions that can act as a springboard for accelerating the transition to sustainable food systems.
“Australian agtech needs to engage all of the food supply value chain. Global Table is the first Australian meeting to bring all of these groups together with an impressive list of international participants,” said Professor Paul Wood AO FTSE, Chair of the AusBiotech AusAg and Foodtech Advisory Committee. “I encourage all of the Australian agtech and food tech industry to attend this event and showcase our innovative solutions to the challenges we face.”
The Victorian Government, through Food + Wine Victoria, along with Global Table and, Seeds&Chips – The Global Food Innovation Summit, will deliver the summit between 3-5 September.
