The Future of Food in the Circular Economy
Level 6 Terrace Entrance (Circular Quay West Side)
As our world’s population continues to grow, it is placing enormous pressure on our food resources, which heightens concern around food disposal and waste. Questions are mounting as to how much longer our food resources can sustain the world’s population and how we will avoid issues such as nutrient deficiency.
The demand for food will increase by 70% within the next 35 years according to the UN. We need to explore how we can produce more food with less, in a more sustainable way.
The panel discussion will explore future possibilities for food resourcing including micro-algae, plant based diets and artificial meat. Discussion will also look at future innovations within the food industry with regards to resourcing and waste.
The session will explore topics, such as:
1. What is the current food resourcing and food waste situation?
2. What innovative ideas and technologies are in development to mitigate these issues?
3. What actions are taking place within our communities to minimise food waste?
4. Tips and tricks to reduce food waste in the home.
Through these topics attendees will consider how we can produce tasty, nutritious food and make it affordable for everyone.
