2019 program

Under the theme of `Food Farm Future’, the program included masterclasses, plenary sessions, breakout sessions, industry speakers and support for start-ups and agrifood tech businesses.

We challenged the conventions of how we think about what we eat and the ethics and impact of those choices. The sessions were thought-provoking, urgent and ignited conversations that every single person and organisation involved in agrifood tech should be having.

Some of the topics to take the stage were, the popularity of nutrition, health and wellness markets, advances in wine production, the role of genetics and cell biology in agrifoods, robotics, global venture capital investments plus insight into the buying trends of Millennials and Gen Z. There was also a focus on alternatives to traditional agricultural methods and why we need to evolve our farming practices.
