As our economies seek news paths for growth, innovation seems, more than ever before, to shake up our most basic and intimate relationship to the food we eat. From the field to our plates, small businesses and multinationals alike are forced to rethink agricultural production, food and the way it reaches consumers tables.
And in fact, do consumers still want to eat at a table?
Can understanding our environment, our behaviors, our stomachs – this intriguing ‘second brain’ – put us on the path to finding new practices, new visions and new revolutionary treatments? Will agriculture reinvest itself through supercomputers or in DNA analysis? Will we soon find gardens on the roof of our supermarkets?
To think about these questions, Unigrains launched ReThink Eat!, which, every two years, brings together the leading international private equity players and corporate leaders of our industry.
Over the course of two days, these actors are asked to rethink what the future of food and agriculture will look like. Together with international experts, leaders reflect on ways to sustainably engage their businesses.
