Meeting Details :

Design experts are touting the merits of circular design as a potential solution to issues like food waste, population growth, sustainability, and urbanization. How can a more circular, closed loop system impact the food industry, and help us to rethink the traditional take-make-dispose product lifecycle? How could the changes impact your company as consumers seek more transparency in food production?

Listen to this great discussion on how Circular Design and the Circular Economy mindset is already starting to impact the food industry in the form of government initiatives, inspiring academic research, and creating new lines of business.
