The mission of Food2050 is to bring together actors/players from the global food supply chain – from seed to plate – to present, discuss and innovate how our plates will look like in 2050 and how we can influence our journey in getting there.

The varied backgrounds of the audience will allow us to find common-ground topics within the main program tracks, enabling exchange and conversation with the ultimate goal of ensuring we are able to meet the food challenges of 2050.

Today and tomorrow’s technology and its influence on what we eat now and in 2050

How do we taste currently? What will be the role of “taste” in 2050?

How will food be grown, packaged, transported, consumed and ultimately expelled in 2050?

Join leading industry professionals from one of these three main sectors at Food2050

Food2050 will be taking place at the world’s biggest and most varied Italian farmers’ market in Bologna. With over 9,000 sqm dedicated to high quality Italian products, this is every foodie’s dream location for a conference.
