7 - 8 June

Welcome to the Big Meet, Sweden's Biggest and Best FoodTech Get-together! Join Us to Celebrate the Future of Food! 

Book June 7 and 8 for an unforgettable crash course in the Future of Food. Be prepared for the usual high-speed, massive information overload, fun and energetic event. Last year we 3D-printed food,  discussed AI food, ate insects and much, much more. 

This year we'll dig into space food, bio reactor production, new urban farming solutions, how to build new cities, recycle even better, grow new products, hear pitches from all the upcoming new stars of foodtech. And more. Much more. If you're also wondering how data, personalized meal solutions, brain food, next gen retailing and sensors will affect food, look no further.  As usual we will bring our friends from near and afar to give you insights into what happens in the world of food all around the world. 

An extra warm welcome to all the great people from New York that will join us through our fantastic partner Swedish American Chamber of Commerce New York for some mind-boggling sessions on Sustainology (the merge of sustainability and technology). We love New York! And New York loves Stockholm.

And all this for only (prices excl. VAT): 

Regular ticket: 3900 SEK
Foodtech Village community members: 1500 SEK (see www.foodtechvillage.com)

Why do we throw away stale bread when it can be turned into beer? Exactly, there is no reason whatsoever. Beer, that sometimes is called "floating bread", can be excellently produced from bread. And since bread is one of the most wasted items in supermarkets all over the world, the rest is pure logic. Rob is the founder of Toast Ale which not only tastes amazing, it does good too.
