Join our expert panel of speakers for an evening discovering what we can expect our food to look like in the future! From ugly vegetables, to AgTech, bee pollination to native foods, Professor Andrew Lowe lays out the challenges of an industry going through unprecedented change whilst trying to ensure productive and sustainable practices. Dr Caitlin Byrt will give us a molecular view of the menus of our ancestors and great grandchildren and discuss how as synthetic biology technologies advance, we will have access to tools to create designer crops and access to methods that will shave years or even decades off the time it takes to develop new crop varieties and Kristen Messenger of Bugs n Slugs talks about eating insects (entomophagy) as an alternative source of protein in the future. You may even like to try a sample! Visit 'Curiosity Lane' and meet representatives from businesses and organisations dedicated to technology and innovation around the future of our food. Cost includes supper and tea & coffee. BYO wine, beer & bubbles.
