With the global population expected to hit 9.7 billion by 2050, the big question is, how will we possibly feed everyone? Ignited helped Soylent explore this provocative topic at their Tomorrow’s Food Today events in Los Angeles and New York City!
The events were created to galvanize the emerging food-tech community through unique culinary experiences, key conversations and valuable opportunities so that together we can make unhealthy, unsustainable and unaffordable food voids obsolete.
In addition to an exciting panel discussion moderated by Scott Hamilton Kennedy (Writer/Director, FOOD EVOLUTION), we’ve invited brands including Bowery Farming, Ocean Hugger Foods, Umami burger, ediBOL, ripple, Café Gratitude, Flying Embers, Seek and Califia Farms to showcase their products and culinary delights to fill your belly as we break bread.
Speakers include Bryan Crowley (CEO, Soylent); David Benzaquen (Founder, Ocean Hugger Foods); Mark Rampolia (Co-Founder & Parter, PowerPlant Ventures); Abby J. Leibman (President & CEO, Mazon); Robyn Shapiro (Founder, Seek); Jonathan Scheiman (Co-Founder, Fitbiomics); and Ann Yang (Co-Founder, MISFIT Juicery), as well as a culinary demonstration and tasting table by LA Chef, Jordan Kahn.
