Inspiring conversation among top international companies tackling food waste and making the food supply chain more efficient and sustainable

About this event

At Forward Fooding, our mission is to showcase the global startup talent at the intersection of food, technology and sustainability. This time, we’ll do so while diving into the Middle East food system, where the scarcity of water resources and fertile land represent a major challenge to agricultural production. Also due to their growing population, countries such as the UAE are now seeking to overcome their reliance on food imports and start local production boosted by the latest innovations in AgriFoodTech.

Join this inspiring conversation in the third and final episode of the webinar series brought to you in collaboration with the UAE FoodTech Challenge. This international startup competition is seeking the world’s most innovative agricultural technology solutions addressing food security challenges. It is presented by the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment and Tamkeen, in association with ASPIRE.

During this online event, we will be focusing on technologies tackling Food Waste and making the food supply chain more efficient and sustainable, bringing together international startups already operating in the Middle East and global startups that may be interested in entering the UAE market. The insightful conversation sparked between these inspiring founders will highlight current and future trends in the sector, existing and upcoming challenges and what is needed to solve them.

Anne Le More, United Nations Food Champion, Co-Founder at Chefs 4 the Planet and Advisor at Forward Fooding, will be moderating the session.
