Today, ‘food’ has the soft power currency once only associated with music--pioneering, outspoken, iconoclastic and even, at times, political.

Food processing, new products and high profile chefs have broken boundaries, created new cultural references, and broadcasted a more connected, but yet infinitely more diverse, worldview. However, production, manufacture and distribution have also set huge challenges and raised ethical dilemmas among those of us lucky enough to entertain ‘choice’ in our economic and social exchange with food.

How can our planet sustain 9 billion people on a healthy and nutritionally balanced daily diet? How can we justify the application of water on crops that return less than the cost of the water used to produce them? How do we ensure biosecurity and traceability in and throughout supply-chains? And how do we educate and inspire consumer confidence to make better economic, health and diet-related choices?

Open State’s Future Food program is designed to address some of these big-picture questions by engaging with internationally renowned health professionals, management consultants, leading primary producers to share their insight and experience. We will be focussing on diet as both a predictor and a management tool for future health; challenging the idea of scale as the only economic model of commercial success; examine niche as a viable mainstream alternative; and proposing ‘quality and origin’ as a logical, sustainable antidote to the existing universal retail mantra of ‘fast-good-cheap’.

Join Open State’s 2017 Future Food program to share in some of the global industry’s challenges and insights, and to learn of South Australia’s leading food community response.
