Emerging Trends At The Intersection Of Food & Technology

Food+Tech Connect shares their observations following their SXSW panel on How Technology is Revolutionizing the Way We Eat.

Few things are as inherently social as food, we love eating it, cooking it, and learning about where to best get it from and experience it with others. Brands and startups have been fast to mobilize around this opportunity – from Jamie Oliver‘s Food Revolution, to Foodspotting, to the oftentimes polarizing Whole Foods. The instinctive opportunity for collaboration, innovation and creativity resulting from the intersection of food and technology have us particularly interested in the organization Food+Tech Connect, which identifies, connects & elevates opportunities specifically at this intersection.

Chitra Agrawal hosted a panel at this year’s SXSW on ‘How Technology is Revolutionizing the Way We Eat’, recapping full learnings and emerging innovators in a recent blog post on Food+Tech Connect. We were particularly interested in some of the emerging trends & patterns they observed, as well as the related examples cited:

We believe food, whether its consumed at a restaurant, at a supper club, or purchased from local purveyors to be prepared at home, represents a naturally social and engaging opportunity that can be particularly enhanced by technology. We look forward to seeing some of these trends permeate, and the offerings that can address them.
