The future of food: What will we eat in 50 years? - 21 May 2024

Join us as we explore the evolving landscape of the food industry and its potential to reshape our world. Discover new ideas, engage with industry experts, and taste what the future holds. Please register below to secure your seat.

What will you eat in 50 years? Imagining the future of food is both challenging and exhilarating: the transformation of the global food system is one of the great developments that promises to define our lives. A new paradigm is emerging, shifting away from an almost singular focus on production efficiency towards a rising focus on the effects of food on people and the planet. While the negative externalities of food have become as large as the value of the sector itself and have grown too large not to be addressed, we have been undervaluing food as a tool for achieving strategic goals such as increased productivity, social cohesion, and building attractive and well-functioning urban habitats.

Join us on May 21 for a deep dive into the future of the food industry. We will start with our bachelor students pitching their innovative food businesses to an audience of investors - in a true Dragons’ Den style event! We will then move on to an exciting conversation with industry experts about the future of food, new forms of financing, and the role of entrepreneurs. And when lunchtime comes around, we will be able to get a taste of the future at the food fair in the Atrium. Please join us for any part of the event that interests you. You are welcome to come and go as you please, attending the sessions that most appeal to you.

This event is organized by the House of Innovation and the Tech Initiative at the Stockholm School of Economics in collaboration with Sweden FoodTech.
