What is the future of food and beverages?


Future of Food & Beverages Think Tank

jovoto and partner Ignore Gravity have launched the world’s first think tank that brings together food and beverage innovators and entrepreneurs, global brands, and a global interdisciplinary crowd of 80 000 creatives to explore future scenarios beyond existing market studies, trend reports, and international R&D. Twitter

The think tank will launch tomorrow, April 27th at 5pm CEST with the first crowdstorm (a mass-collaborative, social brainstorming session hosted on jovoto.com) exploring the following question: How will digitalization impact how and what we eat in the future? Twitter

Liz grew up drinking maple syrup by the gallon and frolicking in wheat fields in her native Canada. In 2015, Liz moved to her 7th city in 5 countries in 6 years, settling in Berlin to join jovoto as Head of Marketing & PR.



    I also grew up on a farm in Maine where we collected maple sap in the spring and boiled it down to make Maple Syrup. I have been following the vertical and roof top gardening concepts but so far have not been convinced that they can be profitable after the grant money runs out. I believe areas of greatest benefit to the world population will be continued work on GMO so that more food can be produced with less pesticides for our growing world populations. Second will be automation in field planting and harvesting. Wishing you great success.

    Thanks Jim!
