A lot of innovation is going on in food tech, making food cheaper, more nutritious, better tasting and with less emissions during production. Here you'll find articles about AI, sensors and IoT, big data, digital biology, precision farming, cell-grown meat, GMO and automation.
A farm in Scotland is using sea water from the Atlantic Ocean to grow its vegetables. The project is led by Glasgow based startup Seawater Solutions and they have figured out a way to replace freshwater with saltwater to grow food.
Researchers at the University of Florida have conducted research that could lead to simplified logistics to lunar colonies and potentially agriculture in harsher regions of the earth.
If we'd replace some of the beef we currently eat with mushroom protein, we'd reduce carbon dioxide emissions and halve deforestation by 2050.
A new variety of wheat can grow in saline soils and gives better yields than today's wheat variety.
A robot that can test how the taste changes as we chew will be able to cook tastier food tailored to each person's preference.
In Sweden, a seafarm wants to show how seaweed can become a future food necessity and a possible resource for plastics and biofuel by growing it in abundance all year round.
A newly developed way to improve crop quality without any genetic modification might make the promise of scientific advancement in food production come sooner.
Process water from, for example, herring factories can be used as fertilizer for land-based algae cultivations and both increase the protein content of the algae and make them grow faster.
Not ready to give up on meat yet? Don't worry, there are many options. Sustainable meat, fake meat, cultured meat: technology offers healthy and climate-friendly "meaty" alternatives in the plant-based diet of the future.
