Food, personalized to your goals, nutritional needs, tastes and lifestyle.
Dream or a reality?

How can technology help you to decide what to eat, how much and how frequently?
There is one certainty. Our food and eating habits are getting more personal, more transparent and in many ways more healthy.

Our journey to the inspiring Nordic food scene in Copenhage will learn us more about the future and trends in the food industry and will tackle questions like:

How will food play a key role in pro-active and preventive health care?
How to make consumers make dietary choices to prevent illnesses like obesitas and diabetes?
Will food prescription create new opportunities for health-driven food platforms?
Which technologies will become available to change our behaviour and help us to live healthier?
How a personalized nutrition company uses your DNA to tell you what to eat?
How will big data and artifical intelligence deliver health insights and influence behaviour patterns?

In a nutshell, we'll find out how innovative start-ups, leading researchers and nutrition specialist from the Nordic eco-system find new paths to healthy food?

On our journey we take an in-depth look into industry-specific trends, exploring what's next in the personalized food industry.
