Food systems and packaging is something that affects everyone, from the farm to the market, to our homes, and back into the environment.
What experiences have you had around food systems as a food and tech expert, or even just as a citizen? Whether it’s with advanced technical concepts around packaging innovation, or just getting rid of your packaging waste; is there anywhere you have seen improvements in the way food is packaged, brought to you, used, and/or discarded?
We’d love to see any thoughts, examples, or experiences you’ve had as a starter on exploring the concepts around an impactful breakthrough in food systems.
For more info, here’s a New York Times article that explores some of the ideas around a circular food economy. Can supermarkets use (or even produce) more local food? How can we reduce packaging? Can byproducts like the water from food production be used to grow more new food, or can vertical farms help produce food closer to population centers?
We look forward to your anecdotes, feedback, and ideas!
