How AgriTech startups fix the broken food system
38% of the global land surface is occupied by agriculture. 26% of global GHG emissions come from food production. By 2050, our population is estimated to grow to an estimated 10 billion people. This raises the challenge of producing 56% more food without further increasing the amount of agricultural land while drastically cutting GHG emissions. At the same time, conditions for farmers must be improved, unhealthy and unethical food production prevented, and more.
In recent years, an increasing number of AgriTech startups developed solutions to tackle these pressing and seemingly unsolvable combinations of challenges! Tune in to our lunchtime panel with driven AgriTech entrepreneurs from the Nordic tech scene and learn about:
- What it takes to fix the broken global food system
- How vertical farming reduces food waste, emissions, and water consumption
- How agricultural land can be used to store carbon and fight climate change
- How opportunities for farmers and consumers arise through supply chain integration and transparency
