IS CEA TRULY THE FUTURE OF FARMING?

Climate change is already affecting farmers across the globe with extreme weather patterns, including flooding and heatwaves, increasing in both frequency and intensity. Furthermore, increasing dependence on chemical herbicides and pesticides not only comes at greater costs to farmers, but also to the natural ecosystems and organic matter needed to maintain the quality of the soil. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) or most known by people as Indoor/Vertical farming can help take positive steps towards a more sustainable, and profitable future by reducing water consumption, the need for chemical intervention, logistics, and land usage. In this food talk, we will get to know from CEA practitioners in Malaysia why CEA practice needs to be implemented to facilitate the use of Precision Agriculture and Smart Farming and if truly CEA is the future of farming?

IS IT REALLY TRASH?

CIRCULAR AGRINOMICS - Relook at the perspective of food waste and agriculture waste.

Use agriculture as an industry to close the loop of the food system.

What we assume as food waste or agriculture waste is actually a nutrient-rich by-product that has huge potential to be leveraged as a 'closing loop' in the circular food system. However, there are many limitations in terms of resources and technology to salvage this nutrient. This dialogue puts forward breakthrough entities/initiatives around the Southeast Asia region that are redefining what we think is waste.

Health & sustainability is on the minds of more consumers now than ever before, especially so in the current C19 pandemic. Whether for healthier versions of classic meals and snack foods or searching for grocery items that suit particular dietary needs, the quest for a healthier lifestyle and sources of Good Food is imbuing the food industry in full force. The food industry is well-positioned to transform these new trends into new products and unique marketing opportunities, and education on all fronts. Advances in foodtech and innovation, including positive influences on public health, enhanced food security, improved convenience, taste, and texture as well as reduced costs for both consumers and manufacturers are key to building inclusive and sustainable sources of Good Food for all. In this session, we will explore and discover the consumer lens on future food trends, including aspects of sustainability and wellness, as well as how to ensure that your sustainable food solutions are backed by successful marketing and innovation, relevant to consumers’ needs.
