As part of the month long event aimed at using technology to tackle food waste in the F&B sector in Hong Kong, Metta held a series of 5 workshops bringing together industry leaders, start-ups, NGOs and researchers into discussion.
I was invited to present alongside the Economist Intelligence Unit to speak on food security. On a macro level, the global food security index identifies a country’s strength and weaknesses in order to pinpoint areas of action and policy needed to plug the gaps in the food system. Zooming in to the case study of Hong Kong, I looked at how the city feeds itself and demonstrated the urgent need to diversify and maximise our food resources. Playing a key role in this are food rescue NGOs who are also present in the discussion.
