Day One

Presentation - David Eyre – Future Food Systems CRC.

Context  - We want to identify market opportunities and technologies for urban and regional farmers and food producers. Same goes social ventures, where investors invest to make a difference and a healthy return. It can also be about the City ‘rewarding’ sustainable practices.

Challenge - What are investment patterns and emerging food success stories telling us about where to look? What is it telling us about the commercial viability of urban food technologies; impact investment; technologies for the farm and food business?
