The Future of Food Conference 2019
On 17 September 2019, the Future of Food Conference of NGIN Food will take place for the fourth time in cooperation with Ignore Gravity. The half-day conference is aimed at startups, medium-sized companies, corporations, investors and innovators from the food industry and offers a platform for inspiration and networking.
At this year's Future of Food Conference, the focus will once again be on the digital inventory of the food industry. In a variety of lectures, selected experts will give insights into the future topics of the food industry and share their industry-specific knowledge. A Startup Area with the most innovative food and food tech trends awaits the participants.
Time for Revolution
Under the slogan "Time for Revolution", experts on the Future of Food stage and in workshops will dedicate themselves to revolutionary food concepts and the question of which of these visions can endure in the future. In addition to technological innovations, consumer health awareness and sustainability have a major influence on food production. The power of the consumer is increasing, the power of the food companies is decreasing. The entire industry must open up to new perspectives.
Raffael Wohlgensinger, Founder & CEO of LegenDairy Foods, explains how biotech is revolutionising the food industry by using "Cellular Agriculture" to produce milk proteins without cows.
Lukas Eichhammer, founder & CEO of CBD [manufaktur], and Dr. Lisa Feuerhake, attorney at law at ZENK Rechtsanwälte, deal with the trend ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) in food and get to the bottom of the question of how start-ups in Europe deal with the unclear regulations.
Peter Kowalsky, Founder & CEO INJU, who also launched the cult drink BIONADE, gives insights into the quality assurance of food and the political framework conditions for beverage start-ups.
Besides, they're on it: Doreen Huber, founder & CEO LEMONCAT, Andre Klan, Head of Finance Little Lunch, Dr. Simone K. Frey, founder & CEO NUTRITION HUB, Hans Stier, founder & CEO Bonaverde and many more.
Food and Food Tech in the Startup Area
In addition to a varied stage programme, participants can expect a startup area in which startups present and explain their products from the food and food tech sectors. On site are How I Like with their platform, which is supposed to revolutionise catering at the workplace with the help of an intelligent refrigerator, and air up with their drinking bottle, which mixes water with air flavoured by scented pods and thus creates taste without any additives. Other exhibitors include Wisefood with its edible apple-pomace-based drinking straw, Raw Honey with its ecological honey and Faitron with its innovative and mobile solutions for heating food.
As a further highlight, speed networking offers the opportunity to get to know potential business partners.
