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.
Scientists are trying to understand how and why the plant Duckweed grows so fast. Getting clues from the plant’s genes could help with both food scarcity and climate change.
We already know that meat production, trawling, and one-sided farming in mega-format are environmental culprits with an end date. But now new types of climate-smart food are being developed.
Vertical crops are considered to be truly sustainable. Startups have already attracted hundreds of billions of dollars to the area.
An agreement between growers and buyers shows that it is possible to increase soy production in Brazil without felling any rainforest.
The Danish company Nordic Harvest will build a 7,000 square meter vertical farm that will produce 1,000 tonnes of food a year.
We already know that meat production, trawling, and monoculture farming in mega formats are environmental culprits with an end date. But there is new climate-smart food being developed – and it's happening fast.
Canadian scientists develop an eco-friendly substitute for palm oil that is good for human health and will hopefully reduce deforestation of rainforests.
Vertical gardens produce a large amount of fresh vegetables with minimal water consumption, without pesticides and genetic modification.
10 billion tonnes of food is produced yearly, but one third of it is wasted. This has to stop, and there are several smart technologies that can help us with that.
