The Italian food-tech initiative Seeds&Chips – The Global Food Innovation Summit is one of the top food innovation events worldwide dedicated to showcasing new ideas and cutting-edge solutions from around the world. The Summit is a hub for leaders and innovators to meet, discuss and build platforms for a more sustainable food future. Seeds&Chips believes that technology is increasingly playing a key role in the food system and has the potential to solve the most important and vital challenges we face: ensuring healthy, safe and sufficient food for all.
The EAT Foundation (EAT) is a global multi-stakeholder platform that brings together leaders from science, business, politics and civil society to comprehensively address the food system’s challenges and create pathways to a sustainable, healthy future for all. EAT drives interdisciplinary research, develops evidence-based targets and helps translate knowledge into business actions, policies and changed consumer behaviour. Now, the two organizations join forces to amplify the impact of their efforts.
“We are thrilled to have Seeds&Chips joining our growing network of influential partners,” said Dr. Gunhild A. Stordalen, Founder and President of EAT. “To solve the food-related challenges, spanning from malnutrition and diet-related diseases to climate change and loss of biodiversity, more evidence and new policies will not be enough. We need concrete solutions that benefit both people and planet. Given EAT and Seeds&Chips’ joint vision, shared values and complementary approaches, we believe we can achieve great things by aligning forces and co-creating events.
“We are proud to become strategic partners with the EAT Foundation. Seeds&Chips is dedicated to showcasing outstanding talent and cutting-edge solutions from around the world and the partnership with EAT follows our strategy of working closely together with companies, organisations and institutions who believe and support innovation in the food industry,” said Marco Gualtieri, Founder and Chairman at Seeds&Chips. “We are excited to have both former U.S. President Barack Obama and Gunhild A. Stordalen as our key speakers at this year’s summit.”
