Australia is at the forefront of innovation and TSBE Food Leaders Australia is committed to helping make these innovative ideas into reality.
However, there are several challenges the agrifood industries are facing:
- Lack of connectivity slowing the rate of adoption
- Slow adoption of technology and lack of connection between different innovations; and
- Maximum natural resource use
The 400M Agrifood Innovation Forum will help drive the innovation needed to solve these identified issues.
The forum will showcase solutions that use innovative technology to assist in different stages of food production. There is 400 million hectares of arable land in Australia that needs to play its role in feeding the 400 million emerging middle-income earners in Asia – this is a challenge, but also a great opportunity for the producers of our region.
The 400M Agrifood Innovation Forum, held annually, brings together our brightest innovators to connect with delegates representing industry and our region’s most influential investors. This year’s forum will be held at the Empire Theatre in Toowoomba on Wednesday, November 27, followed by a field day on property on the 28th.
The agricultural industry is also facing challenges to keep up with the population growth around the globe, and this event celebrates and showcases the solutions that use innovative technology to assist in different stages of food production.
The 400M Agrifood Innovation Forum also drives the adoption of Ag Tech and delegates will hear from global leaders in innovation, and network with industry professionals to find opportunities to grow their agrifood business in the future.
This year’s forum will include:
· Keynote presentations
· Panel Discussions
· Agrifood Innovation Showcases
· Interactive Q&A Opportunities
· Networking Opportunities
· A Tradeshow of the latest technologies on the Agrifood scene
