“Agriculture is the world’s largest industry—valued at $15 trillion, approximately 17% of the world’s economy—and what we eat defines our culture and identity. Food can either be medicine or poison. Transforming farms and food, therefore, is no small task, and many in the Big Ag and organic camps dismiss the potential for disruptive entrepreneurs.” — Richard Munson (who ardently disagrees), Tech to Table
What will the future of food technology look like?
Today, we tap into Richard Munson for insight on how these advancements are shaping our dining scene. Richard is the author of Tesla: The Inventor of Modern, From Edison to Enron: The Business of Power and What It Means for the Future of Electricity, and most recently, Tech to Table: 25 Innovators Reimagining Food.
Imagine what our world will look like when:
- The food supply chain is meticulously catalogued in the blockchain…
- Your entire burger is grown in a laboratory…
- Pastry shops will have rows of treats created by 3D printers…
While it may not taste any different, it will solve massive problems related to sustainability, pollution, climate change, obesity, animal cruelty, and more.
And in this episode, Richard and I explore the potential impact on restaurants.
