13 Dec 2017 – AgriFoodTech Platform Congress 2017

On December 13, 2017, the AgriFoodTech Platform Conference takes place in the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch. It focuses on “Food & Future: Know what you don’t know”. You often just eat what you know. But society is changing. More and more consumers want to know where their food comes from and how it has been prodcued. This has an effect on the supply chains and food systems. At the Conference, the Postharvest Network will organize a parallel session “Stop food waste: Dutch innovations for efficient food chains in emerging markets”.

Know what you don’t know

What do consumers know about food, and how does that knowledge affect what they consume? Generally speaking, consumers will only eat foods that they are familiar with. Society is changing. More and more people want to know where their food comes from, and how it has been produced. These developments are having an impact on supply chains and food systems. To make sure your organization is and remains future-proof, you have to know what you don’t know.

If you ‘know what you don’t know’, you will be able to anticipate new developments, make the required changes, identify opportunities, and devise innovative solutions. The AgriFoodTech Conference will focus on ongoing changes in the food supply chain, the role played by technology and the interplay with developments in society, including the impact on your company. Meet representatives of the technology sector and the food industry, farmers, retailers, other entrepreneurs, as well as educators, government officials and representatives of NGOs and consumer interest groups. Find out what you don’t know about food and the future, and the food of the future!
