Food and the Internet

Even we can admit food is more important than the Internet!

The Internet has changed the way we access food - think online supermarket shopping, food bloggers (when was the last time you used a cook book?), nutrition info at your fingertips and what your friend had for dinner last night plastered over social media.

What is considered food? Your genetically modified chicken? Your meat made in a lab? 3D printed meals? (Yes, this is a thing!)

We held an eat and greet on May 11, 12pm – 1.30pm at PricewaterhouseCoopers Tower, Wellington

And yes, there was food.

Panelists included:

  • Emma Foley, who launched UberEATS here in NZ, will discuss the impact that the Internet is having on the food market, and opportunities for entrepreneurs
  • Collier Isaacs from Farm IQ will talk about what is happening overseas with farm to plate tech and what the main opportunities for NZ are
  • Bruce Baillie (Chairman of PwC Food Supply and Integrity Services) leads a global PwC team, which develops products and services designed to ensure the integrity of supply chains within the food and agriculture sectors. 

Well known NZ Chef, Martin Bosley, chaired the event.

The recording of this event is available below (starting at 10.58).
