Future Food-Tech New York approaches. The online event takes place on 2-3 December, connecting hundreds of food-tech pioneers committed to strengthening North America’s food system in the new normal.

As urban populations grow there are many challenges to overcome, from coronavirus to climate change, obesity to food security – Future Food-Tech is opening a platform to promote the dialogue to help players in the food ecosystem address these pressing problems.

How do we foresee the next phase of the Covid crisis impacting the food system? How can we strengthen the food system to create nutritious, sustainable and accessible food for urban populations? These and many more questions will be answered throughout the two-day event.
