Future Food Conference Set To Test The Taste Buds

More than 100 business representatives from across New Zealand will meet in Hawke’s Bay to look into the future of alternative food sources – and the future, it appears, tastes like scorpion. Following on from the findings of a report commissioned by Business Hawke’s Bay and Tomoana Logistics, next month’s Future Foods Conference intends to assess what the next steps are for businesses. “We decided that report needed to be socialised with a bigger group of people to look at what the global trends are and what the opportunities are for Hawke’s Bay within those trends,” Business Hawke’s Bay chief executive Carolyn Neville said. More than 150 people were expected to attend the conference, including representatives from universities, local food producers, national companies and national food writers.
